NHS 24 launched their winter health campaign today (26 November 2015) with Shona Robison MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Health and Wellbeing and John McAnaw, NHS 24’s Head of Pharmacy at RCSEd's Surgeons' Hall Museums.
Be Heathwise This Winter uses Dr Owl to raise awareness of the simple steps the public can take to manage winter illnesses and advises what to do if you fall ill over the winter period. The campaign also aims to reduce pressure on NHS services during the very busy winter months by helping people make the right choice about where best to take their health needs.
Dr Owl will be delivering his messages across radio, television and newspapers, as well as Facebook and Twitter (@NHS24 #healthwise) throughout December. You can join in the conversation and share your own top tips via #healthwise.
