Dealing with Seasonal Changes
GPs, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals from the Vale of York have worked with the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to provide self-help guides so that you and your family and friends can stay safe and healthy during the summer months.

The government have also produced guidance about coping with heat, called Beat the Heat. The guidance includes tips on how to keep yourself and others safe from harm during hot weather, how to keep your house cool and what signs to look out for in heat related illnesses.
Cold weather can be seriously bad for your health. That's why it's important to look after yourself, especially during the winter. If you start to feel unwell, even if it's a cough or a cold, don't wait until it gets more serious. Seek advice from your pharmacist.
The City of York Council Winter Health page also provides a range of useful tips and navigation to health videos on various winter related treatments.
