Thank you to all health and care staff who have been busy working through the day and night to help us stay well and keep warm at GP practices, in hospital, out in the community, on the roads and answering your calls.
We have heard some amazing stories of the efforts staff and the community have gone to in the snow. If you know of a local health, care or community Southampton #snowhero please do let us know so we can make sure they get the thanks they deserve!
As the cold weather looks set to stay over the weekend, please take care out there. For advice to help you, and those more vulnerable to the cold, stay warm and well visit www.nhs.uk/Livewell/winterhealth/Pages/KeepWarmKeepWell.aspx. Southampton City Council also has lots of useful local information on their website including advice on helping the homeless, support to keep your home warm and updates on travel in the city: www.southampton.gov.uk/news/article.aspx?id=tcm:63-398559.
