It is helpful to know if you have a Carer (someone who takes on an unpaid caring role) or if you are a Carer for someone else. We have a page dedicated to Carers where you can also register with us as a carer so we can provide you with additional support.
58% of patients dispose of their inhalers in their domestic waste which will end up in landfill as local councils do not have the resources to recycle these. We aim to remove inhalers from landfill one inhaler at time!!
We would like to remind patients that we are involved in the GSK ‘Complete the cycle’ inhaler recycling scheme.
Simply return your used or old inhalers to our dispensary team and we will do the rest!
For more information on the scheme please visit www.completethecycle.eu
Living Well is a service provided to adults who are struggling with various aspects of day to day life. Every Friday morning, each week, we provide four 45 minute appointments with a living well practitioner who will explore with you whatever you are finding difficult. Then, together, you will be able to discuss how to tackle the issues and improve your well-being. The service is appropriate for almost all kinds of problem but some examples include; loneliness, bereavement, loss of support networks, loss of confidence, finding a way into employment, carer related problems and many more.
