#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.

The retirement of Dr Alasdair Carter

Dr Carter retired on 31st December 2015. He had worked at the practice for 35 years and was well respected by all his patients and colleagues, who were extremely sad to see him go. He will be missed by all.

Dr Carter came to the practice in 1979 as a trainee GP and twelve months later became a partner of the practice. He worked full time until 2 years ago when he reduced his commitment to two days. He continued to carry out his special interest, acupuncture for patients of the practice until his retirement.

He settled in the Ribble Valley and brought up his 6 children in West Bradford and then Clitheroe. His eldest two sons have followed their father’s footsteps into medicine and his two daughters, like their mother have careers in the nursing profession.

We wish him and his wife Yvonne a long, healthy and happy retirement.
