Help Us Help You

The winter months can put huge pressure on the NHS, especially urgent care services. NHS England and Public Health England have created a campaign to help you stay well this winter.
Flu vaccination

The flu virus can be very serious and even deadly. It's important to get the flu jab every year as the virus changes. 

The flu jab is free if you are over the age of 65, pregnant, have a long term health condition or aged 2 to 3.

Speak to your GP or pharmacist about the flu jab today.


Feeling unwell?

Most common winter illnesses such as a cold, cough or sore throat can be self-treated with over the counter medicines and rest. If you need advice, speak to a local pharmacist who will be able to give you medical advice. 

A&E is for emergencies and life-threatening conditions only. Please only visit A&E if necessary to help reduce the waiting times for those who need urgent help.

If need urgent medical advice, call NHS 111 and a health professional will be able to provide advice and direct you to the right service.
