During the COVID19 pandemic these services are subject to change.
Choosing the right care means helping you to get the right treatment at the right time.
Working with the neighbouring CCGs, Harrow CCG has launched the ‘Not Always A&E‘ campaign to encourage residents to use their NHS wisely.
The campaign reminds North West London residents that there is a wide range of healthcare services available to them, and they can get better quickly if they choose the right care for their need.
