Modern life makes it hard to be healthy

Without knowing it, by the time we reach our 40s and 50s many of us will have dramatically increased our chances of becoming ill later in life. Whether we are eating the wrong things, drinking more than we should, continuing to smoke despite everything we know, or just not being active enough, all of these small things can add up to an unhealthy you.

Making better choices today can have a huge influence on our health, and could prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease, and reduce our risk of suffering a stroke or living with dementia, disability and frailty in later life. But it’s not easy in our busy lives – tempting treats in easy reach, bigger portions for everything we eat and technology that allows us to shop, stay in touch and be entertained without ever having to leave the sofa. Modern life is ganging up on us.

The good news is we can fight back.

Worried about your child's health?

Worried about your child’s health?

Improving the quality of care for children and young people in Wessex.

When faced with an unwell child, parents often find the healthcare system (GPs, pharmacists, urgent care centres, walk in centres, minor injuries units, out-of-hours GP services and A&E departments) confusing to navigate. When they are unable to access local services in a timely fashion, they often end up seeking help from highly responsive services such as A&E departments and 999 ambulances. This in turn places increased strain on these already overstretched services.

National Patient Participation Awareness Week 2016

June 6th – 11th 2016

Patient Participation Week aims to highlight the importance of patient participation to achieve excellence in care for all patients. During the week Patient Participation Groups across the UK will be holding a wide range of events to increase public and professional awareness, including working with local media organisations to spotlight success in patient participation.

The week is organised by the National Association for Patient Participation, (N.A.P.P.) a national charity, formed in 1978. Uniquely placed as the only umbrella body for patient-led groups in primary care, N.A.P.P. has almost 40 years’ experience in promoting, supporting and developing Patient Participation Groups (PPGs). There are now over 3000 groups affiliated to N.A.P.P., representing at least ten million patients across the UK.

Working in partnership with GPs and practice teams, Patient Participation Groups ensure the patients’ perspective is at the heart of local provision so that services are of high quality and continuously improve. Groups also provide practical support in the surgery, foster improved communication between the practice and its patients and help patients to take more responsibility for their health.

Stalbridge Surgery has a PPG, chaired by Amanda Pugh. If you would like to be involved with Stalbridge PPG, please leave your details at reception in the surgery or email secretary@gp-
