Community comes together for #HelpMyNHS campaign video



Members of the public, NHS staff and staff at NHS Crawley, Horsham and Mid Sussex Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have all come together in a video to pledge their support for the #HelpMyNHS campaign.

You can watch them talk about the ways in which they are pledging to help their NHS, from choosing the right services to use when they don’t feel very well, to prescribing more effectively to keep costs down for the NHS, alongside promoting the flub jab to patients and colleagues.
The #HelpMyNHS campaign was set up to tackle the biggest financial challenge the NHS has known as more people than ever call on its services. So the CCGs continue to ask everyone in the 5 communities across Burgess Hill, Crawley, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Horsham and the surrounding villages – to do something small to #HelpMyNHS. Crawley residents can add their name to the pledge wall, and demonstrate their commitment and support for our local NHS.
