Please take care in the snow and cold weather affecting our region.

Some people are more vulnerable to the effects of the cold weather. This includes:

  • people aged 65 and older
  • babies and children under the age of 5
  • people on a low income (so cannot afford heating)
  • people who have a long-term health condition
  • people with a disability
  • pregnant women
  • people who have a mental health condition

Look after yourself and others, and go to or call 111 if you have an urgent medical problem and you are not sure what to do.

The sooner you get advice, the sooner you’re likely to get better.

In an emergency, go to A&E immediately or call 999.
