#STOPbowelcancer

https://www.bowelcanceruk.org.uk/campaigning/support-our-campaigns/time-to-test/

Our supporters and volunteers make change happen. Every bake sale, run, corporate partnership, awareness talk and donation brings us a step closer to stopping bowel cancer.

We are working hard with researchers across the UK. We are campaigning at the heart of government. We supporting patients and their families. And we are educating people about bowel cancer.

Our vision is of a world where no one will die from bowel cancer, but we can’t achieve this alone. None of this would be possible without our fantastic fundraisers, supporters and volunteers. The money you raise and give will fund the highest quality research and essential information and support services that will save lives from bowel cancer.

Thank you for all that you do. Together we can stop bowel cancer.

PRE DIABETES INFORMATION SESSIONS

These sessions are held every first Thursday of the month in the health education room at Clitheroe Health Centre from 9.30am – 11.00am.

Due to the demand of appointments for people who are informed that they are in the pre-diabetic range. We decided to form a group education session run by our Healthcare Assistants, Sarah Hemingway and Kirsty Downham.

*We aim to keep the sessions easy to follow and educational, covering what diabetes is in simple terms and explaining different types of good and bad fats in cholesterol.

*The session involves visual games to help understand how much sugar and carbohydrates are contained in drinks and foods.

The session is open to partners and carers to attend along with the person for support.

If you have been informed that you are in the pre-diabetes range and would like to attend the group session please contact Pendleside Medical Practice for more information.

Great News if you are one of our over 75 patients

You will soon be receiving an invitation from our new nurse, Sarah Wood, who has been employed especially to look after you, if you are over 75.  Sarah has expertise and knowledge about services and help you may wish to access, that you do not presently know about.  When you meet Sarah she will do a general assessment and advise you on what is available to you should you need extra help.  If you are fit and active this is a great opportunity for you to have an over 75 well person check.  Most of you will be fit enough to attend the surgery, but  for those of you who are not and are housebound, Sarah will visit you at home.

 For our over 75 patients that are not quite so well  and need a little extra help, a Community Matron has been employed, she is called Diane Hobro and she will be looking after patients from Pendleside, Castle, Whalley and Slaidburn practices with complex needs such as multiple long term conditions.

 All our patients are registered with the practice but have a doctor that they usually see when they come to the practice.  It is especially important to us that our patients who are over 75 know which doctor to contact should they need them.  You have all been informed of who your usual doctor is, but if you are still unsure please contact us at the practice or ask Sarah or Diane when you see them.

 The practice wants to ensure that our elderly population is well cared for and that you are getting all the help you need.
