Vitamin D for health care professionals and the public

Public Health England has recently published two new leaflets, Vitamin D: Information for healthcare professionals (PDF) and Vitamin D: All you need to know (PDF), to raise awareness of current UK government advice on vitamin D and the risk of vitamin D deficiency.

These leaflets explain the importance of vitamin D, and current government recommendations on vitamin D supplements for at-risk groups of the population, including:

  • pregnant and breastfeeding women
  • infants and young children
  • older people
  • those who have low or no exposure to sunlight

They aim to provide consistent messages about the importance of preventing vitamin D deficiency.
