Lift someone out of loneliness

Feeling lonely is something that all of us can experience in our lives, which can have negative impacts on our health and wellbeing.

There are lots of simple actions that you can do to help others who may be feeling lonely, including:

● Giving a friend or family member a call or text πŸ“ž
● Inviting someone for a walk πŸ‘Ÿ
● Reaching out to a friend for a cuppa β˜•

You might find that reaching out to someone else could help you to feel less lonely too.

Over 75s Spring Booster

5-11 COVID vaccinations

From Saturday April 2nd 2022 parents will be able to book a jab for their 5-11 year old child using the National Booking System and from Monday April 4th selected local walk-in clinics will also be open to this age group.

Previously, covid vaccination for 5 to 11 year olds had been limited to children who are clinically vulnerable or immunosuppressed. However, it is now recommended that the vaccination is offered to all 5-11 year olds, to boost immunity and increase their protection against any future waves of Covid.

CPCS

Charnwood GP Practice is participating in a new approach to improve access to medical care for patients. 

This service will ensure that patients get the care that they need quickly and will direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional according to their healthcare need.

If it is likely that your symptoms or condition can be resolved through a consultation with the Pharmacist rather than a GP, you may be referred to the Community Pharmacist Consultation Service

Benefits to patients:

1) Reduced waiting times

You will be given a same-day referral to any participating pharmacy of your choice. This will allow you to speak with a minor illness specialist and receive expert advice and treatment. 

2) Flexible and convenient appointments 

You can select a pharmacy that is most convenient for you to attend if you need to have a face-to-face consultation. Alternatively, consultations can take place remotely via telephone or video call. 

3) Appropriate treatment and signposting

You can be offered clinical advice and treatment, signposting or escalation to another healthcare provider when needed (such as 999, A&E, Urgent Treatment Centre, or your own GP). 

4) Improved availability of GP appointments for complex health needs

The service will free up GP appointments for patients with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, but the right healthcare professional.
