Stay Well This Winter – NHS

winter1-page-001A national Stay Well This Winter campaign launched in October. This is aimed at helping people stay well during the winter months when people are often more vulnerable to becoming unwell. The campaign is particularly aimed at those with long-term health conditions, people over 65, pregnant women and parents of young children.

We are supporting the campaign here in West Hertfordshire and encouraging people to:

· Seek immediate advice and help from a pharmacist as soon as you feel unwell, before it gets more serious
· Make sure you get your prescription medicines well before pharmacies close on 24 December
· Always take prescribed medicines as directed
· Keep yourself warm – heat your home to at least 18 degrees C (or 65F)
· Get your flu jab if you are eligible
· Keep an eye on elderly or frail friends, neighbours and relatives
· If you need medical help fast or you are not sure where to go, call NHS 111
The campaign activity will raise awareness so together we can help everyone stay well this winter.
