Off with your headache - use your pharmacy this jubilee
A very special and very unofficial Queen has been travelling across Northamptonshire ahead of the Diamond Jubilee to remind her subjects about the health services available in the area and promote NHS Milton Keynes & Northamptonshire’s Jubilee Health Guide.
The unofficial tour is the subject of a viral video depicting Her unofficial Majesty and the unofficial Duke of Edinburgh interviewing various healthcare professionals from in and around Northamptonshire. It’s part of the Choose Well campaign which encourages people to use alternative health services to accident and emergency departments.
The unofficial Queen said, “One must choose well to ensure one receives quick and convenient medical treatment. There are ways of dealing with one’s ailments other than using the emergency services.”
Heidi King, Head of Social Marketing, NHS Milton Keynes & Northamptonshire said, “We are always looking for new ways to encourage people to use the different health services available in the county, and as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is coming up the video seemed like a great way to promote Choose Well and our Jubilee Health Guide to a younger audience.”
The Jubilee Health Guide has all the health informa tion you’ll need for the Jubilee weekend, including where you can go when feeling unwell, staying safe in the sun and alcohol advice. It can be found here.
