As you get older it is still important to look after your health. You can still do lots to prevent ill-health or if you have a long-term condition you can improve your quality of life through small changes to your lifestyle.
If you have had a cough or been ill for more than 3 weeks you should visit your GP who can tell you if you need other tests or treatments.
