Stay Well This Winter
We undertook some innovative engagement work at the end of last year to promote the flu campaign and to tackle winter pressures. Many organisations and individuals wanted more information on the flu campaign and find out where to go for help if they could not get a GP appointment at a time suitable for them.
Working with our voluntary sector partners and Merton Council we promoted the uptake of the flu vaccine across a number of target groups and the range of health services available. We worked with organisations such as the network of children centres in the borough targeting the under 5s, to working with the elderly Tamil community in Mitcham, we also undertook some innovative work with the staff of the local job centre to promote awareness of the flu campaign and access to the GP hubs
We promoted self-care and self-management information and advice available from local pharmacies, the Health Help Now App and the national Stay Well This Winter campaign.
