NHS Winter Health Advice

With colder weather forecast for the beginning of the New Year, there is some useful advice on the NHS website for keeping warm and well.

Andrew explains, "You can find tips on being prepared for winter weather, keeping your home warm, help with heating costs, protecting your health in the cold weather and looking in on vulnerable neighbours and relatives. "

To find out more, please follow this link: https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/keep-warm-keep-well/

For further advice on what assistance is available for heating your home this winter, there is useful information on both North Lincs Council’s and East Riding Council’s websites:

https://www.eastriding.gov.uk/housing/energy-efficiency/energy-efficiency-at-home/

Andrew adds, "Please also share this information with family, friends or neighbours, particularly older people, as they are the most vulnerable to winter illnesses."
