Cold weather can make some health problems worse and even lead to serious complications, especially if you are 65 or older, or if you have a long-term health condition.
There are a number of things you can do to help including getting your winter vaccinations and using the NHS 111 service first for any urgent medical need.
The below links take you to the relevant advice and information to support you during the winter.

Washing your hands
Regular hand washing with soap and water remains an essential part of good hygiene and helps prevent the spread of COVID-19, as well as other winter illnesses such as colds, flu and stomach bugs.
Hands should be washed with warm water and liquid soap for at least 20 seconds before rinsing and drying them thoroughly. If soap and water are not available, people should use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
