Stay Well this Winter

Stay Well

Hook Surgery is supporting the national 2017/18 Stay Well This Winter campaign.

The Stay Well This Winter campaign is a joint initiative from NHS England and Public Health England, to help people with long-term health conditions, children under 5 and those over 65 prepare for winter and ward off common winter illnesses.

Winter can be seriously bad for the health of these people, increasing the risk of blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes for those with a long-term health condition or who are over 65, whilst young children can readily pick up and spread illnesses amongst their wider circle - including family members of all ages.

There are a number of things you can do to prepare against the cold weather:

  • At the first sign of a cough or a cold, get immediate advice from your pharmacist before it gets more serious.
  • Speak to your pharmacist about medicines you should have in stock over winter.
  • Pick up prescription medications before the Christmas holidays start as many GPs and pharmacies will close over the holidays.
  • It is important to keep warm in winter, so heat your home to at least 18C (65F), if you can, you might prefer your living room to be slightly warmer.
  • Make sure you get your flu jab.
  • If you need help over the holiday period when your GP surgery or pharmacy is closed, call NHS 111 or visit www.nhs.uk

These tips can help you and your family prepare for winter, stay well and get well quickly.
