Get in the know about local health services

Get in the know is a new campaign created by NHS Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland to support you to get the right care as quickly as possible when you are unwell or injured. Here you can learn more about the campaign and the various services that can support you.

With all the local information you need in one place, we hope that you keep coming back to this page, either at your time of need or in advance.  It can be difficult to think clearly when you have an immediate health problem, so we encourage you to get in the know (learn) about local services, before you need to know, so you know what to do more automatically and get more timely care.

Look out for information carrying the get in the know logo in the future as it will indicate useful local service information for you to learn about.
