    • Immunizations and vaccinations
      As it is World Immunization Week I though it would be a good idea to make a forum with posts about vaccinations and immunizations. This forum thus will have information about what vaccines are available for the UK public, what vaccinations/immunizations do and where you can get a vaccine/immunization. I hope this is informative for you all.

    • Your choices in the NHS

      Did you know that in many cases you have the legal right to choose where you have your NHS treatment? The NHS is offering more and more options to enable you to make choices that best suit your circumstances, giving you greater control of your care, and hopefully better results.

      You can view what choices are currently available to NHS patients in the NHS Choice Framework. Here you'll also find information about when you cannot choose – for example, if you need emergency care or you're a member of the armed forces. Make sure you know which options apply to you.
