There are lots of things you can do to stay well this winter.
Get your flu jab: the flu virus is active in winter and it can be far more serious than you think. Contact your GP, practice nurse or pharmacist to book an appointment now. Find out more information and if you're eligible for a free flu jab on the West Sussex Wellbeing website.
Eat well: regular hot meals and drinks will keep you warm. Stock up on tinned or frozen foods. Get it delivered if you can, so you don’t have to go out when it’s cold or icy.
If you feel unwell: act quickly and don’t wait for it to get worse. Winter can make existing health problems worse. Speak to your pharmacist, as they are fully qualified to advise you on the best course of action.
Safe and Well Visits: are a free service offered by West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service to those aged over 65 or those living with disabilities. It involves a prearranged visit to your home on how to make it safer. If you would like to request a visit please call 0345 8729 719.
