Are you feeling lonely this winter?

Are you feeling lonely this winter? Loneliness has no common cause. Sometimes it can be triggered by a life event or change in situation, or it may not be triggered by anything at all. We all experience feeling lonely in different ways. It's really important to remember that loneliness and difficult feelings can pass. Sometimes it can feel easier to reach out to someone else who may be feeling lonely. There are plenty of simple actions you can take to help lift someone out of loneliness and in doing so, it might help you to feel less lonely too. Find out more about the steps you can take to help yourself and those around you and where you can find further support.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital winter pressures plea

  • The Children’s Hospital Emergency Department is incredibly busy – those who are not seriously ill will face very long waits to be seen and may need to go elsewhere for help.
  • Remember, the Children’s Hospital Emergency Department can’t help with dental or eye issues. For an eye emergency, please attend the Midland Eye Centre at Dudley Road open 9am-7pm.  NHS 111 can help with finding and accessing an Emergency Dentist
  • There are things you can try before visiting, such as:
      • View our ‘virtual consultations’ to hear our doctors’ advice on the most common reasons people come to the Emergency Department. Click here.
      • Visit Healthier Together, a website recommended by our doctors, which has advice and resources for parents and young people. Click here.
      • Visit 111 online (for children aged 5 and over) answer questions about your symptoms on the website and they will tell you what to do next.
  • Take these simple steps to keep well this winter:
