Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Campaign launches to help people make the best of living with a health condition

Being active is one of the best things you can do, even if you’re healthy. But it’s especially useful if you’re living with a health condition. Being active can help give you more energy, make you sleep better and feel less stressed as well as help manage symptoms and protect your health.

There are simple tricks you can use to build activity into your daily routine. “Even just a bit of hoovering counts as activity in my book,” says Ron.

Ron is from Liverpool and in his 70s. He has a condition that inflames his airways, but he’s not one to give in. You might think, “I’m not fit enough” or “I don’t have time”. But almost anyone can become more active and it is safe for most conditions. Ron takes a simple and safe approach. He says, “Start easy and do what works for you.” He recommends “taking a 10 minute walk each day. Or just get off the bus a stop early.”

There are so many ways to be active including gardening, chair based activities and gentle stretches. Pick any type of activity that appeals to you. Listen to your body and mind, and you’ll soon find the activity you enjoy.

Led by Liverpool City Council, the Fit for Me campaign aims to inspire the people of Liverpool to become more active. Visit the Fit For Me website and find out more about the campaign.
