Protect yourself from the effects of cold winter conditions.

With the temperature dropping, it’s important to protect yourself and others as much as possible from the effects of cold weather conditions. Older people, children, babies and residents with underlying health conditions are amongst those particularly vulnerable to the effects of cold weather. 

Hertfordshire County Council have put together some health advice on how you can be ready for the cold weather.

If you or anyone you know is struggling to heat their home, or someone may need help to get shopping or medicines, please contact HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044 or visit cost of living webpage.

If you are concerned about yourself or someone else, please call NHS 111, contact your GP or get advice from your local pharmacy.
