Looking After Yourself

The Better Health webpage is available at www.nhs.uk/betterhealth This provides tools to help manage weight loss – from checking your BMI, to getting access to free support tools including the NHS 12-week weight loss plan.

Cervical Screening – Don’t Forget – Cervical screening can prevent cancer before it starts. Two women die every day from cervical cancer. Don’t ignore your cervical screening invite. If you missed your last cervical screening, book an appointment with our practice nurse.

Bowel Cancer Screening – Invitations are sent to everyone over 60 years of age. We strongly recommend that you send your samples as soon as possible. We believe that early detection and early treatment can save several lives. Most people will have normal results, only a few might have to go for further tests if stool test is positive. Please do not ignore your invitation letter, if you would like to discuss this further with one of the Doctors in the surgery, we would be very happy to advise you over the telephone or in person if you prefer. Alternatively further information can be obtained by:  Contacting your programme hub on 0800 707 60 60 Or visiting the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk or call 0845 46 47

Blood in Pee – could be a sign of cancer. Do you look before you flush? If you don’t, you may miss seeing blood in your pee – a possible sign of cancer. If you notice it, even if it’s ‘just the once’ tell your doctor. For more info: www.nhs.uk/bip
