Cold weather can be seriously bad for your patient’s health. From coughs and colds, to more serious conditions such as flu and chest infections, the impact of winter can be devastating for those who are not prepared.
That’s why the annual Stay Well This Winter campaign is important, as it helps to ensure patients are prepared for the effects of winter and know who they should contact if they start feeling unwell.
To help promote the campaign to your patients we’ve added a range of Stay Well This Winter videos to our Envisage Media library. These include videos highlighting the importance of getting the annual flu vaccination, particularly for those with long term health conditions, young children, elderly people and pregnant women.
There is also content encouraging patients to visit their pharmacy if they start feeling unwell and before it gets more serious. Patients are also directed to use the NHS 111 service if they need more urgent health advice. All of this can help to reduce visits to Accident & Emergency and GP practices, which is so vital during the busy winter months.
If you would like any help adding the Stay Well This Winter videos to your Envisage system then please visit our dedicated support section, or contact our technical support team on 0114 399 0010, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
