A BIG THANK YOU! J
Last year with the monies very generously donated to the surgery by our patients, we managed to purchase a new spirometer with software that is linked to the computers.
This year we are saving for a new ECG machine or/and some additional Blood Pressure machines that we can loan out to our patients.
Once again, we would like to say a big thank you from all of us, for your generosity and support.
It has been pointed out to us that a company called Pharmacy 2u have been writing to our patients offering their dispensing services. You certainly have the choice of which provider you choose to dispense your prescriptions, but we are concerned that the letter seems to implicate that this company it is part of the NHS. It is not, it’s a private company that seeks to make money for profit.
One of the ways in which our practice can maintain income to sustain your services, is by supplying medication to our patients. Doing this helps make the practice financially sustainable during these very uncertain times of GP closures and amalgamations. Using other services will threaten this.
We really appreciate your support. Thank you.
Not sure where to start? Worried about looking out of place? Got some medical issues that might hold you back?
The Active and Healthy 4 Life exercise referral scheme is a personalised 12 week fitness programme drawn up and supervised by qualified instructors, making it easy for you to take up regular exercise. Funding from the council helps keep costs low for participants.
It is for anyone with an existing condition such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, depression or anxiety, and some types of arthritis, who would gain health benefits from a more active lifestyle.
Ask at your GP or Practice Nurse appointment if you think you might benefit and they haven't suggested it first. If you brought along a copy of the referral form with your details already completed that would make things easier!
Mental Health concerns?
2019 not quite shaping up how you'd like?
By all means come and discuss with your GP, but if you are over 18 feel free to self refer to this service as it is the same one that we will direct you to.
