Use care cards to help users identify and understand the sort of care they need, who to contact and how quickly.

How to use Care Cards

Create care cards with the example raw HTML block below. Follow the instruction within the raw HTML code to alter content.

Non-urgent care card

Use this card when you want users to contact their GP or arrange an appointment with a health professional, like a practice nurse. You can also use it to tell people to get advice from a pharmacist or to go to a clinic.

Urgent care card

Use this card when you want users to call or visit a GP or hospital urgently because they need advice or care quickly. You can, for example, use it to tell people to contact 111 or to go to a walk-in centre or minor injuries centre.

Immediate care card

Use this card when users need to get emergency help straight away - meaning "now". Tell them to dial 999 or go to their nearest accident and emergency (A&E) department.

Where appropriate, include a link to help users find their nearest hospital A&E department.
