Health Help Now aims to help people in Merton find the right service for their health needs. It provides advice and guidance and signposts to the relevant health and care services. It is suitable for everyone to use. Under 16s should use the product in conjunction with their parents.
Health Help Now has been developed with input from local GPs, hospital consultants, and other healthcare professionals in Merton. Our community services provider and local voluntary sector service providers have also contributed to the information and services provided on this site. The site lists common symptoms, services and advice and offers suggestions for treatment and support. The one which works best for most people is listed first and the other suggestions follow in order. Health Help Now then links through to local services and shows whether they are open or closed and their location.
By choosing the right service for your needs, you can avoid unnecessary trips to A&E.
If you require urgent treatment for symptoms which are not listed on Health Help Now, please ring NHS 111.
