This type of cold weather is unprecedented this time of year. Take the weather into account when planning your activity over the following week when temperatures fall. Seek entitlements and benefits such as Winter Fuel Payments and Cold Weather Payments, which are available to some. Avoid exposing yourself to cold or icy outdoor conditions if you are at a higher risk of cold related illness or falls. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the weather and the best action to take, please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.
