The fourth day of the campaign focuses on encouraging people living with asthma, diabetes, heart problems and those who have suffered a stroke or diagnosed with liver or kidney disease, to heed advice produced by health experts to keep them well - not only throughout winter but for life.

Supporting people to stay fit and healthy

13th November 2017

There’s a new campaign launching in Leicestershire this week, encouraging people to take care of themselves and knowing what’s available to help them look after their health.

The ‘self-care’ campaign aims to support people to build confidence in treating and preventing minor illnesses so they don’t need more support further down the line.

The county’s Health and Wellbeing Board is launching an intensive campaign of awareness raising, including social media, which also signposts where people can access advice and information.
