Winter campaign launches with clear message from the region’s NHS – ‘Keep calm and look after yourself’ to combat those common winter illnesses
The NHS in the region is joining forces once again this year and urging North Easterners to ‘Keep calm and look after yourself’ to combat the usual winter coughs, colds, aches and illnesses that are common in usually healthy people at this time of the year.
Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) across the North East launch their annual winter campaign on Monday 17 November and are reminding people that many of the common winter ailments and illnesses people come down with at this time of year are easily treated at home or with advice from a pharmacist – with no need to see a doctor or nurse and keeping valuable appointments open for those who really need them.
Backed by partner NHS organisations in the region, the campaign will run throughout the Christmas holiday period, traditionally the busiest time of the year for the NHS and targets people who are usually in good health and perhaps wake up one morning feeling under the weather and don’t know what to do.
