Be Healthwise This Winter


People across Scotland are being urged to look after their health this winter with a few simple steps that can help to avoid illness and take the pressure off busy NHS Scotland services over the festive holidays.This advice is being shared as part of the national ‘Be Healthwise’ campaign.

The ‘Be Healthwise’ campaign is fronted by Dr Owl and advises people that stocking up on over the counter medicines, checking any repeat prescriptions and ordering only what is needed to cover the holidays can help to avoid or deal with the most common winter ailments. It’s also a good idea to know GP surgery and local pharmacy opening hours over the festive break.

Being prepared for common winter illnesses, or knowing where to get help if ill health does strike means that dedicated NHS Scotland staff can help those most in need at one of the busiest times of the year.
