Winter Is Coming!

Winter Is Coming!

3rd November 2017

Widnes Vikings are partnering with NHS Halton CCG to help people get prepared for the winter season.

A free event will take place at the Halton Stadium on the 20th November 2017 from 4pm to 7pm. The event will offer free flu jabs for eligible patients (pre-registration is advised), expert advice on how to stay warm and save money on heating bills, information about what health services are available and the chance to speak to local GP’s and health professionals.

A variety of local services and organisations will be on hand to give any advice required to help residents stay safe and well during winter.

Stars from Widnes Vikings will be in attendance to help share NHS messages about staying well this winter and get involved in all the fun. 

Dave Sweeney, Chief Executive of NHS Halton Clinical Commissioning Group said

“We are proud to be working with Widnes Vikings to get the message out there that staying warm and healthy is so important for your own health. This is all the more important during the winter months as NHS services such as A&E are stretched so thin. By having the flu vaccine you can dramatically reduce the risk of becoming unwell with the flu.

There will a lot of advice at the event to help you stay well and inform you of the services that are on offer in our borough and beyond.”

More information and details on how to pre-register for a flu vaccine can be found at NHS Halton CCGs’ website: or you can contact the CCG directly, email or call them on 01928 593479.
