Know Who To Turn To (KWTTT)
When someone is ill or injured it is important that they go to the right
service to ensure they get the right advice, treatment and support for
recovery. NHS Grampian's Know Who To Turn To (KWTTT)
information leaflet and website
practical advice on which service to contact to get help with illness
The KWTTT staff information campaign was launched in May 2013 to
support staff in communicating and reinforcing key messages of
KWTTT with colleagues, families, partners and the public. Staff
engagement sessions were held in various sites across Grampian focusing on a staff
information DVD that had been produced. To view the DVD, please visit
A KWTTT public awareness campaign which ran from November to December 2013,
included a leaflet door drop to 57,000 households in postcode areas identified as having a
high usage of Emergency Departments. A television advertisement was also part of the
campaign and 372,000 adults in the North East of Scotland were expected to see the
advert at least once.
KWTTT will be visiting the Scottish Kids Show in June 2014 to engage with parents around
the range of health services available and provide top tips on first aid for the under 5s as
well as how to make the most of their community pharmacy.
6. 111 – the new free telephone number for NHS 24
The telephone number for NHS 24 has changed to 111. This new number will ensure
people can access the service via a landline or mobile phone free of charge. NHS 24 is for
people who are ill when their GP surgery is closed, either through the night or at the
weekend, and cannot wait until it reopens. More details can be found at
7. Clinical Decision Support Service
The Clinical Decision Support Service was launched on 2 September
2013. The service covers Grampian and provides a dedicated
telephone line which allows GPs, paramedics, advanced nurse
practitioners, minor injury nurses, rig medics and offshore doctors, to
have direct access to a senior consultant/doctor who can support
them to put in place the best care plan for their patient.
Sometimes, the most appropriate outcome will be for treatment to be
administered in the person’s home. This may not only be a better
arrangement for the person and their family, but will also contribute to
relieving pressure on stretched emergency departments. If transfer to
hospital is required, this can be planned depending on the individual’s circumstances. The
clinical team can then be informed so that they are prepared for an individual’s arrival.
The practice will be closed on the following Public Holidays:
MONDAY 13TH JULY 2020
Please contact NHS 24 if you cannot wait until the next day the GP practice is open
