NHS 24 is launching its annual winter health preparedness campaign ‘Healthy Know How’ which helps people manage the usual winter illnesses with advice and helpful reminders ahead of the festive holidays.
Winter is a busy period for public services and the NHS is no exception. To support services and enable people to get the help they need quickly and easily, NHS 24’s ‘Healthy Know How’ campaign encourages people to be prepared for common winter ailments ahead of the festive season. The campaign reminds people who rely on repeat prescriptions to check they have enough to last over the holidays and to reorder in plenty of time. People are also reminded that GP opening times will be affected by the festive holidays and to make sure they have cold and flu remedies in, just in case.
The messages are important for everyone in Scotland but especially people who may be particularly vulnerable to winter illnesses, including those with existing medical conditions, the elderly, and parents with young children. NHS 24 welcomes your support in sharing the campaign and has produced various assets to help you share these important messages with your audience.
