Support your NHS and join in the #StayWell Twitter campaign

Friday, 26 January 2018

Our hospital is busy. Next week we will be sharing information on Twitter about what you can do to help.

Healthcare providers in the Bristol area have teamed up to help increase awareness of how members of the public can support their NHS during the busy winter period.

North Bristol NHS Trust has partnered with the Bristol NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, Bristol Community Health, Sirona Care & Health, One Care and NHS England for a Twitter campaign which will run from 29 January until 2 February.

The #StayWell campaign will involve a different health service leading on each weekday with key messages about how people can take care of their health, and what to do and where to go if they become unwell.

On Monday, NHS England and Bristol NHS Clinical Commissioning Group will be tweeting about self-care, with tips on how to look after your health in the winter months. Check out their @NHSEngland and @Bristol_CCG Twitter feeds and the #StayWell hashtag.

Bristol NHS Clinical Commissioning Group and One Care will be sharing advice on Tuesday about how you can stay well, and which service to access for your healthcare needs. Keep up to date with their tweets at @Bristol_CCG and @onecaretweets.

Wednesday will see Sirona Care and Health and Bristol Community Health tweeting about the care they provide in the community to prevent trips to hospital. Give them a follow at @SironaCIC and @BrisComHealth for lots of helpful advice and information.

On Thursday, we are teaming up with University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (@UHBristolNHS) on Twitter to talk about when you should attend our Emergency Departments, and what you can do to get home from hospital sooner. You can follow us at @NorthBristolNHS.

On the last day of the #StayWell Twitter campaign, Lead Occupational Therapist Clare Waggett will be taking over our Twitter feed. You will be able to see how she helps patients with their rehabilitation goals, and you can check out our partners’ feeds through the #StayWell hashtag.
