NHS winter campaign – we need your help!

It is important to look after yourself, especially during the winter months.  Colder weather means more slips and trips – and generally more of us feeling unwell as we spend more time indoors and coughs, colds and other viruses are passed around.

This winter, NHS Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is supporting a region-wide campaign aimed at helping people to stay well this winter, by providing lots of useful advice on how to prevent and manage the most common winter ailments.

The campaign features a new family of ‘plasticine people’, who will help the region’s NHS through the challenges of winter, by helping people to make the best use of stretched NHS services.
