Health and happiness

Devon County Council and the NHS work together to improve the health and happiness of people in Devon and make sure everyone across the county has equal access to health services.

People with disabilities have a much greater likelihood of developing health problems (both physical and mental) when compared with the general population.

The links below will take you to useful information on staying healthy from our partners. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on these pages, visit NHS Choices for health information and guidance on all aspects of health and healthcare.

Staying well in winter

Cold weather can lead to very serious health problems and sometimes the cold weather can even kill – especially if you have a long-term health condition.

Our Staying well in winter page contains information and links about what you can do to look after yourself.

Alternative formats

The NHS Choices website provides guidance about staying well in winter in easy read format, large print, BSL and audio.

Also available is an easy read version of All about flu and how to stop getting it for people with learning disabilities.
