Winter Warm and Well is a multi channel campaign from Age UK Lambeth, supported by Lambeth CCG, which is aimed to ease seasonal pressure on NHS primary, urgent care and emergency services.
The winter months can be challenging for the NHS, especially for urgent care services. The seasonal increase in hospital admissions can lead to hospital congestive failure (where resources are diverted from elsewhere in the hospital to cope with the influx from A&E). The holiday period from 24 December to 2 January is particularly challenging as many GP practices and pharmacies close for all or part of this period.
The Age UK Lambeth Winter Warm and Well campaign is designed to reduce the number of older and vulnerable people, who become so ill that they require admission to hospital.
