Mental health consultation

An advertisement in the Macclesfield Express (Wednesday 7 March 2018) gave the wrong freephone number for people requesting further information on our 12-week public consultation on proposals to redesign specialist mental health services for adults and older people in Eastern Cheshire, South Cheshire and Vale Royal.

The correct number is 0808 169 1189.

Health Matters - Delayed transfer of care

I wanted to start this week’s column by thanking readers for easing pressure on the NHS this winter by choosing the right healthcare at the right time. Figures for winter so far show that relatively few people have visited A&E at Macclesfield Hospital unnecessarily.

By treating coughs, colds and sore throats at home – and with help from their community pharmacist – people are helping ensure that urgent and emergency care are available for those who really need it.
