Stay safe and well in cold weather

The Met office has issued a yellow warning for snow today (27 December) where the cold weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable patients and disrupt the delivery of services.

Travelling is becoming difficult for many, so residents should think about how they could best access any healthcare they need – and how to avoid a lengthy trip to an Accident and Emergency Department. The best option may be to stay at home to recover, to visit a pharmacy for treatment, use a walk-in or urgent care centre, or to call NHS 111 for advice and signposting to a healthcare service.
