Keeping well during the cold winter months
With temperatures set to plummet and the prospect of cold winds, sleet and snow this week, local GPs are encouraging people to be aware of the dangers of cold weather.

The Met Office has issued a 'yellow Level 2' weather warning with a 70% probability of very cold weather. Lower temperatures can increase the health risk to vulnerable people including the elderly and those with a long-term health condition.  more>
Easier access to more help

NHS staff working within the community will soon be able to help their patients access a wide range of additional health and social care support thanks to a new system designed by the voluntary sector to make it quicker and easier to share information.

Community health services in Suffolk have signed up to the ‘Warm Handover’ online referral system. It allows staff to make multiple referrals at the click of a button to any other organisation which is enrolled with the scheme, which includes the police, Suffolk Family Carers, Age UK Suffolk, Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Mind.
