Keep warm, keep well

18th December 2013

GPs from West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group are encouraging people to stay healthy and warm over the winter months.

It is important that everyone keeps warm in order to keep well because being too cold can have a significant impact on your health.

Last winter (2012/13) in the UK, there were 31,000 deaths linked to the cold weather.
