Stay Well This Winter

Cold weather remains the biggest cause of weather related mortality in England. The Public Health England and NHS England campaign, 'Stay Well This Winter', aims to help people, especially those in vulnerable groups, to stay well and keep their loved ones well in winter. The campaign aims to maximise independence and encourage self-care, including:-

  • Encouraging flu vaccination
  • Heating homes to at least 18°C (65°F)
  • Seeking early advice and help from pharmacists
  • Preparing ahead of holiday periods (eg) having prescription medicines
