Tips on how to stay well this winter

A national Stay Well This Winter campaign has started and provides advice to help everyone to stay well this winter.

This campaign covers the following guidance:

  • Seeking immediate advice and help from a pharmacist as soon as you feel unwell, before it gets too serious
  • Getting prescriptions before 24 December
  • Completing the course of prescription medicines
  • Keeping as warm as you can
  • Getting a flu vaccination
  • Stocking up on winter food supplies
  • Keeping an eye on elderly or frail friends, neighbours and relatives

You can find out more this guidance on our website or by visiting the national Stay Well this Winter website.

This campaign is particularly aimed to help those with long-term health conditions, those over 65, pregnant women and parents of under-sevens, but contains useful advice to help everyone to stay well over the winter months.
