Welcome to West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group.
West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is a clinically-led organisation responsible for commissioning integrated health and social care for 170,270 patients in West Norfolk.
Our aim is to ensure we commission the right integrated services in order to improve the health and wellbeing of the people of West Norfolk.
With winter approaching, now is the time for us all to start thinking about looking after ourselves.
West Norfolk CCG is supporting the NHS ‘Stay Well This Winter’ campaign which has been launched by Public Health England and NHS England.
As well as protecting against flu, the campaign will urge people over 65 or those with long-term health conditions, such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease or respiratory illness, to prepare for winter with advice on how to ward off common illnesses.
The NHS ‘Stay Well This Winter’ campaign urges people to:
Make sure you get your flu jab if eligible.
Keep yourself warm - heat your home to least 18 degrees C or (65F) if you can.
If you start to feel unwell, even if it’s just a cough or a cold, then get help from your pharmacist quickly before it gets more serious.
Make sure you get your prescription medicines before pharmacies close on Christmas Eve
Always take your prescribed medicines as directed
Look out for other people who may need a bit of extra help over winter.
