Ageing

Country of origin: UK

A map of areas in England where people over 65 years may be living without central heating has been produced by the Department of Health. The resource is part of its campaign ?Keep Warm Keep Well? - and practice teams should use the information to identify vulnerable patients and offer advice on staying warm and healthy during the colder months.

?Cold Homes Map? is available on the Department of Health website.
