As healthcare services come under pressure during the winter months, the local NHS service has launched a new video in a bid to ensure Dudley residents stay well over Christmas.
The fun video – put together in the style of a Christmas Carol – gives advice, tips, and messages which include reminders to book a flu jab and pick up repeat prescriptions.
Dr Steve Mann, an executive at the NHS Dudley CCG, said: “It’s important to be prepared for winter and to make sure you have stocked up your medicine cabinet with items including cold and flu remedies, anti-diarrhoeal tablets, tissues, and a first aid kit.
“If you have a prescription, make sure you pick it up before the busy Christmas period.
“We can all do our part to stay well by keeping warm, taking cold and flu remedies if we… begin to become ill, and by having a flu jab.”
