Find out why healthcare services in West Norfolk need to change if they are to meet current and future needs of local people.
Our "Evidence for Change" report looks at the challenges the NHS is facing in delivering healthcare now, and in the future, nationally, and in West Norfolk.
Our Choose Me Not A&E campaign helps people in the West Norfolk and Wisbech area find the right NHS service to get them well.
Demand on health care continues to grow and can lead to long waiting times in A&E departments. If you are unwell or injured there are many treatment options that may be more suitable than a busy A&E department.
For minor injuries and illnesses you might be able to look after yourself at home. If you need help urgently but it is not an emergency, your local pharmacy, GP or the NHS 111 service can help.
If your illness or injury is serious but not life threatening you can get medical help at a minor injuries unit. Please only visit A&E or call 999 in an emergency.
