Said Gordon Lishman director general. ely without worrying about cost."

"Many pensioners still agonise about whether or not to heat their homes in the cold weather. In the world's fourth richest country, this is simply shameful. The £200 winter fuel payment and the basic state pension have both failed to keep pace with rising costs of energy." Said another charity Help age.

"The NHS is helping people, particularly the most vulnerable, to stay healthy during winter. Last year more than 71% of people over 65 received a free flu jab - the highest ever takeup.
