Feeling Under the Weather?
NHS Wiltshire CCG is supporting the NHS winter campaign, ‘Feeling under the weather?’.
The campaign is urging older people to seek early advice from their pharmacist for minor winter illnesses. It is targeted at the over 60s, and also at those aged 45 and above who often look after an older friend, neighbour or relative.
If you’re over 60 a minor illness can get worse quickly. The campaign encourages people feeling under the weather with a bad cough, trouble breathing, a cold or sore throat, to pop down to their local pharmacy for quick health advice.
The campaign will run from 27 October for six weeks, and adverts will appear on the radio and press, as well in supermarkets and local pharmacies.
