Sun Safety

Sunburn increases your risk of skin cancer. Sunburn doesn't just happen on holiday - you can burn in the UK, even when it's cloudy!

Visit the NHS website for more information on sunscreen and sun safety.

 

Vaccination information

Vaccinations keep yourself and those around you safe from harmful diseases. This protection can stay with you throughout your life. There is a wealth of information on vaccine availability and their safety on the NHS website for vaccinations.

 

Winter health

Cold weather in the winter months can cause health problems for the elderly and/or vulnerable.

There are simple things you can do to keep warm and stay healthy in winter, including setting the correct temperature in your house, improve insulation and have a flu vaccination. Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.

Flu vaccinations are available at your local GP surgery, at some local pharmacies and, for pregnant women, at your midwifery service.

For more information on the flu vaccination, please visit the NHS website for flu vaccination

For more information on all issues related to winter health, please visit the NHS website for winter health.

Winter can be a particularly difficult time for those sleeping rough or are having trouble heating their homes. Please see the Fuel poverty bag and the Helping hand scheme for more information.
