Pledge to use NHS services wisely

There are things that we can all do for ourselves and for one another to help the NHS work effectively, and to make sure resources are used responsibly.

Did you know that?

  • More than 12 million GP appointments are missed every year, costing in excess of £500 million
  • Almost 8 million hospital appointments are missed every year, costing nearly £1 billion
  • More than 9 million people were sent home from A&E in 2016/17 with just advice which they could have got from a pharmacist or by calling 111.
