Choosing the Right NHS Service
West Somerset Healthwise is a publication designed to inform patients of the most appropriate NHS service to choose according to symptoms and urgency. It includes useful contacts for eye conditions and dental emergency. Choosing well ensures you receive the right care at the right time and that emergency care is available to those people who need it the most. The publication is available in GP surgeries and has been produced by the West Somerset GP Federation.
