Cold and wintry conditions, combined with shorter days, mean that many of us can feel in poor health. But with a few simple precautions, most people can be ready for the really cold weather and avoid much of the misery associated with it. It may be mild at the moment but the impact of falling temperatures is felt most by older people, the very young and those who have pre-existing medical conditions.

Although much of the advice on how to keep warm and well is common sense, it’s important to recognise that some people will find these things difficult to do without help. So, whether it’s an older neighbour, relative or someone you know who is not in best of health, take time to think about how you might be able to help them to stay healthy this winter.

Please print and share the attached top 10 tips!


If you are struggling to stay warm in your home this winter, or you are worried about a friend, neighbour or relative who might be at risk HertsHelp can help you find out about support that may be available. Call HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044 or email info@hertshelp.net

It’s also important to go to the right place for help. A Pharmacy is a good first stop for many complaints such as colds or flu. Minor Injuries Units see link below, treat a range of injuries like sprains, cuts, minor burns and scalds. For an illness that won't go away, contact your GP or practice nurse, or phone the NHS on 111 for advice.  A&E is for life-threatening situations such as heart attack or stroke and for people with symptoms of serious illness or who are badly injured. In an emergency dial 999.
