Simple steps to help you stay well this winter

With the winter season upon us, a number of celebrities have backed the ‘stay well this winter’ campaign and are reminding people of some simple actions which can help you stay well this winter.   

  • Warm: Keep your house warm this winter at least 18°C (65F)
  • Immunisations: Get your flu vaccination
  • Neighbours: Keep an eye on elderly neighbours and relatives
  • Timely: Seek advice from a pharmacist at first sign of illness
  • Enough: Pick up repeat prescriptions so you have enough while pharmacies/surgeries are closed
  • Restock: Make sure you have enough food and medicine in the cupboards

The latest data reveals that excess winter deaths contribute to about 1 in 20 of all deaths per year, with older people who may be frail, or who have existing long term health conditions, most at risk.
