Flu vaccination is available every year on the NHS to help protect adults and children at risk of flu and its complications.
Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week.
For more information on the flu vaccine speak with your GP or click here.
Cold weather can be seriously bad for your health. That's why it's important to look after yourself, especially during the winter. If you start to feel unwell, even if it's a cough or a cold, don't wait until it gets more serious. Seek advice from your pharmacist.
Self Care Week has been and gone but the information still remains the same and is still relevant. As part of Self Care Week 2018 we decided to post useful information every day that week with a different theme on how you can self care and embed it into everyday life.
