HEALTH bosses are urging people to keep warm and well in the freezing conditions.
As the cold snap continues, health chiefs at NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney are reminding members of the community to protect themselves to prevent ill health.
Dr Shamsher Diu, public health consultant at NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, said: 'It is really important in these cold conditions that people wrap up warm inside and outside their house to ensure they prevent illness along with eating well and keeping their heating on. This is particularly important for elderly people, who are more vulnerable as the weather turns colder.'
The severe weather is creating a greater demand for many of the region's NHS services. People can use a variety of health services if they need help.
