Ask The Doc #1 Hello everyone, it's been a while, but Talking 24 is back, albeit with a virtual spin. This episode and forthcoming episodes will be recorded via Microsoft teams, so if you notice a change in recording quality, that's why. Christmas is a busy time for everyone, but it's an especially busy time for NHS 24. A range of winter ailments can cause worry and discomfort for many people across Scotland, and these include norovirus, mental health issues, sort throats and more. There' one difference this year though, and that's unprecedented COVID-19 situation that we're still very much living with. In this episode, we speak to Dr Anna Lamont, our Associate Medical Director about a range of winter health conditions, and what we can all do to treat and prevent these conditions. We cover a range of conditions including: Coronavirus Norovirus - the winter vomiting bug Mental health issues Falls Chillblains  Raynauds phenomenon  As mentioned in the podcast, for a range of in-depth health information, you can visit NHS inform  (nhsinform.scot).
