Stay Well This Winter

Tips published for people living with long term conditions on how to stay well over winter

 

Health professionals across Suffolk and North East Essex are advising people with long term conditions to take extra precautions to look after their health this winter.  They have published some tips for local people living with long term conditions to stay well over winter.

 

The guidance sheets relate to a range of conditions including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, heart failure,  diabetes type 1 or 2 and diabetes type 2.

(Copies of the sheets are available by clicking the links above.)

 

Dr Phil Brown, GP and Emergency Physician, helped developed them.  He said: “Long term conditions can be exacerbated over winter and these simple easy to use sheets are designed to help people during what is widely predicted to be a very challenging winter period.”

 

Dr Brown added: “It is vital that anyone with a long term condition gets vaccinated against flu to protect themselves against this nasty condition and to ensure they know what to do if they do fall ill.”

 

Paramedic Glenn Young from the East of England Ambulance Service, said winter conditions can be seriously bad for peoples’ health, especially for those aged 65 or older. 

“If you have a long-term health condition, it is really important that you look after yourself as the poor weather and colder temperatures can worsen your symptoms.  By planning ahead it will help you manage your condition during what is widely predicted to be a very challenging winter period.”

 

Glenn added: “It’s also really important for the elderly to keep up to date with the weather forecasts, during colds period of inclement weather, please keep warm and only venture outside if you absolutely need too.  Please ask your neighbours to collect groceries and any medication if you need them. Keep at least one room warm all the times.  If you are elderly and frail please avoid tasks that keep you outside for long period of time, simple tasks around the house can be dangerous in icy conditions such as putting out the washing, ask a neighbour, if not make sure you have the appropriate foot wear and clothing on.

No-one likes being ill or wants to spend time in hospital, so we all need to take responsibility for looking after ourselves as best we can."

 

The following simple steps will help you not only look after yourself but also understand how to use NHS services in the most effective way for you.

 

Personalised Care Plan?

It’s a good idea for those with a long term condition to have an up-to-date personalised care plan. A care plan will help you manage your condition better – especially during the cold weather.

 

Get a flu jab?

The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get the flu jab. If you are in a risk group, are pregnant or aged over 65 or over, it is really important to get vaccinated; contact your GP surgery or pharmacist and make an appointment.

 

If you feel unwell don’t wait – get advice from your nearest pharmacist

At the first sign of a winter illness, even if it’s just a cough or cold, get advice from your pharmacist, before it gets more serious. Act quickly.

 

Think ahead

Make sure that you have enough medication to last when your GP surgery may be closed. It’s important that you book any routine appointments with your practice in plenty of time and ensure that you have enough medication to last you over these times. Don’t use A&E as a back-up pharmacy, plan ahead.
