Keeping Well this Winter

Winter isn’t everyone’s favourite season and there’s no doubt that the cold weather and the prospect of getting flu can be a worry for everyone particularly those in the community that are vulnerable or suffer from long term conditions.

Keeping Warm

As we get older, our bodies respond differently to the cold and this can leave us more vulnerable in cold weather. But with a little preparation, and by following some simple suggestions, you can help yourself to stay healthy, safe and as comfortable as possible this winter.

Keeping Well

Vaccination against flu - Flu can be a killer, if you are at risk you should have your free flu vaccination every year.
