Right Care Right Place Campaign Relaunch

The Right Care Right Place campaign has relaunched this week with new campaign assets available for stakeholders. 

The Right Care Right Place Campaign has been running since 2020, and was first introduced to inform the public of the re-design to the Urgent Care pathway. It has since evolved to further support the public in understanding how to access the right care in the right place at the right time.

The campaign has been designed to communicate the appropriate use of the urgent care pathway, specifically A&E in an effort to help reduce pressures being felt across the system. It's important that the public access the right care in the right place to ease the pressure on health services.

The Right Care Right Place Campaign launched on Monday 9 October across radio channels, with digital following from 16 October and TV from 1 November.

Key messages

  • Only go to A&E if you need urgent medical care for a critical emergency such as a suspected heart attack, stroke or excessive bleeding.
  • If you think you need A&E but it’s not critical or life-threatening, call NHS 24 on 111, day or night, or contact your General Practice.
  • For more information, visit NHSinform.scot/right-care
