Stay well this winter
Free flu jab
Public health officials in Nottinghamshire are reminding people of all ages to get the annual flu vaccination.
Approximately 400 vulnerable people die in Nottinghamshire a year due to winter weather and its impact on their health.
Cold homes can have a significant impact on your health. One of the best ways of keeping yourself well during winter is to stay warm.
Meals at home
Our meals at home service supplies a range of over 70 fresh and nutritious hot and frozen meals from locally sourced ingredients. Meals are delivered direct to your home to help you stay living independently.
Falls and fractures in older people
Ageing increases your chance of having a fall. As you get older your bones may become more fragile and break easier if you have a fall.
There is a range of support available across Nottinghamshire to help you prevent falls and stay healthy.

Elderly neighbours and family
Check on elderly, vulnerable neighbours and relatives.
Cold weather is especially dangerous for older people or people with a serious illness.
Help out where possible to ensure your vulnerable family, friends or neighbours are as comfortable as possible this winter.
