NHS urges people to drink more tea as the coldest winter is coming soon


A campaign has launched today suggests consuming more hot meals and drinks, putting on a jumper and turning up the heating at home to 18C.

And if sickness does strike, ask a pharmacist if it can be treated at home.

The Met Office has warned the UK faces the coldest start to winter for six years — and studies show every 1C drop below 5C in outdoor average temperatures sees a ten per cent rise in older people treated for breathing problems.

Prof Keith Willett of NHS England said: "This will be one of the toughest winters we've ever had to face."

The Stay Well This Winter campaign, run by NHS England and Public Health England, says: "Food is a vital source of energy, which keeps your body warm.

"Try to make sure that you have hot meals and drinks regularly throughout the day, and keep active in the home if you can."
