To promote the correct use of local health services and the Urgent Care Centre in the local community, Healthwatch Bracknell Forest produced an “Alternatives to A&E” poster.
The Prevention and Self-Care Steering Group agreed to fund the printing and distribution of the poster to 63 community locations. These locations included community centres, children’s centres, libraries, leisure centres, colleges, local pharmacies and town councils.
Healthwatch Bracknell Forest had already distributed the poster to member practices of the Bracknell and Ascot Clinical Commissioning Group. The posters were distributed on Friday 12th June 2015 and were sent with a covering letter written by Mark Sanders, Project Lead, Healthwatch Bracknell Forest.
In addition to the distribution of the posters, 3000 A5 Alternatives to A&E leaflets were supplied to local Children’s Centres which were distributed to parents and carers.
