Feelings of loss and grief can be especially hard during the festive season, when there seems to be a perpetual sense of collective joy and celebration all around you - but someone is missing. The pressure you might feel to put on a brave face can often get too much, and forced merriment may leave you feeling even more isolated.

Nobody wants to wake up on Christmas Day with a rotten cold, and imagine having to stay in on New Year’s Eve because you are feeling unwell? That’s why now is a good time to think about what to do if you or a member of your family feels ill over the festive period.

Self-care this Winter

Self care for life

Self-care is important to us all, as prevention of ill health is much better than having to find a cure. We all have things to do that are important to us especially over the Christmas period, so why not look now at what we can do to keep ourselves healthy.

Choose well this winter


Lincolnshire’s NHS want to remind you to choose well when accessing local health services this winter.

Some health conditions such as sprains, colds and coughs can be treated at home or with advice from a pharmacist without a trip to the GP or A&E.   Using the right health service for your health needs will save you time and help take pressure off the NHS.

Christmas 2019 pharmacy opening times


Many GP practices and community pharmacies will have limited opening hours between Christmas and New Year, and are likely to be busier than usual. Patients are therefore advised to pick up their repeat prescriptions and stock up on medicines they will need over this period in plenty of time.
