Keeping well this winter

Now that the winter period is in full swing we want to provide help and support where possible. As such we have brought together lots of information which is available to our colleagues and service users during what may be a difficult time. There is lots of help available throughout this period across North and West Yorkshire.

As health services will be extremely busy this winter, everyone is asked to play their part and to be better prepared during the cold and flu season.

During winter and times of significant pressure on local services, the public are still encouraged to come forward and not to delay if they need help or are concerned about their health, but we want to ensure they’re using the right services and they know when to go to a pharmacy, use NHS 111 or their GP practice.

West Yorkshire Together We Can

The West Yorkshire Together We Can campaign provides advice and tips for keeping well this winter, as well as other useful information on how to stay healthy. Together we can choose well this winter.  Together we can make a real difference. Visit
