Support to Stay Well This Winter
North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) is on a mission to help people stay well this winter by handing out a leaflet containing winter wellbeing advice to patients travelling on the Patient Transport Service (PTS).
From late September PTS staff have kick started the campaign with every patient they see being offered leaflets about the seasonal flu vaccine and top tips for staying healthy - including how to keep warm indoors and outdoors, getting advice from your local pharmacist at the first sign of a winter illness, ordering repeat prescriptions online and looking out for other people who may need a bit of extra help during the winter.
NWAS has also joined forces with Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership to create a booklet containing the wellbeing advice and top tips which is being shared with Greater Manchester residents travelling on NWAS’ Patient Transport Service.
