There is a 90% probability of severe cold weather and icy conditions in parts of England. We want our patients to stay healthy during this time—please help us by: 

  • Staying in and only going out if it is urgent—many injuries, such as broken bones, can potentially be avoided if you stay away from icy paths
  • If you really need to go out, make sure you wrap up in layers of warm clothes, wear flat shoes with a good tread and take a walking stick to help balance
  • Only call 999 if it is a genuine emergency
  • If you’re commuting home from work, allow extra time for your journey 
  • Keep a watchful eye on any vulnerable neighbours, friends and family
