Details

These documents describe the results of an evaluation of the impact of FRS interventions on winter related illnesses. FRS provided interventions to address risks of falls, social isolation, cold homes as well as signposting to flu immunisations as part of the Safe and Well Visit.

These reports will be of particular interest to:

  • fire and rescue services
  • local authorities
  • clinical commissioning groups
  • voluntary sector organisations.

In 2016 Public Health England (PHE), the Chief Fire Officers Association, NHS England, the Local Government Association and Age UK jointly published a consensus statement encouraging local commissioners and Fire and Rescue to roll out Safe and Well checks.
