Support Primary Care

Health professionals working across Primary Care support our health in so many ways.

NHS Norfolk and Waveney is launching a campaign to help raise the profile of Primary Care services and support patients to understand how they can get the best from these services.

Like other areas across the country, many people in Norfolk and Waveney may find themselves turning to the Emergency Department unnecessarily because they don’t always know where to go for help. Some of these reasons include lack of awareness of what services exist and what services can help them with their needs. The Support Primary Care campaign aims to improve that.

The aims of the Support Primary Care campaign

The NHS is adapting to meet the needs of its patients, and the way that patients can access primary care services has also been evolving.

The aim of this campaign is to make it easier and quicker for you to understand what services are available to help you based on your health needs – and help you to understand how you can get the best from these services.

On these pages you’ll find information about primary care services. Find out about the wide range of healthcare professionals in General Practice, the different healthcare services that are available to provide the right care for you when you need it, and advice on Self Care and different ways to access NHS resources.

Staff working in the NHS support our health in so many ways. This campaign also recognises the hard work and commitment of staff working in general practice and encourages patience and respect between staff and patients when accessing general practice services.
