Help your local NHS this winter

The Milton surgery would like to share this message with all residents:

The past 18 months have been really hard for the NHS but there are some small things you can do that will make a big difference to help the NHS this winter

Get your flu vaccine – whether you have one for free or need to buy one from a pharmacy, it’s really important for you and your family to be protected this winter

Get your COVID-19 vaccines – first dose, second dose, third dose or booster, take up the offer of COVID-19 vaccines that are available to you

Download the NHS app – for on-the-go access to your NHS COVID pass, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and more

Use your local pharmacy – they are experts in medication and can provide lots of self-care advice and medicines for winter bugs

Keep a well stocked medicine cabinet – you never know which bugs you and your family might catch this winter, so it’s worth having a supply of basic medications at home
