StayWell summer and winter

Whether it's the bright sunny days of summer or the cold, dark months of winter, we want you and your family to keep fit and healthy.

Taking care of your health in summer is about striking a balance between protecting yourself from the sun and getting enough vitamin D from sunlight.

Cold weather can be seriously bad for your health. That's why it's important to look after yourself, especially during winter. If you start to feel unwell, even if it's a cough or a cold, don't wait until it gets more serious. See a pharmacist for advice.

To reduce the risk of spreading flu, use tissues to trap germs when you cough or sneeze, wash your hands often with warm water and soap, and bin used tissues as quickly as possible. Catch it. Bin it. Kill it. You are eligible for the free flu vaccine if you are pregnant, are aged 65 years or over, have a long-term health condition (check which conditions are eligible), or are a carer. Children aged 2 or 3 years are also eligible. Ask your GP, pharmacist or midwife about the free flu vaccine.
