January Awareness Campaigns

promoting health and wellbeing

From your Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Posted: 13 January 2021 · Practice news

Every month the Academy Medical Centre Patient Participation Group raises awareness of some health and wellbeing campaigns.

This month it will be to keep moving! We are all being encouraged to take exercise in this current situation. Here are a couple of websites to urge you on!:

It is also Cervical Cancer Prevention Week from 18-21 January 2021. Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust wants as many people as possible to know how they can reduce their risk of the disease and to educate others. Read more about cervical cancer at NHS Inform, Cancer Research UK, and Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust. You can tweet and share using the tag #SmearForSmear, and more resources and ideas for promotion and getting involved are available at https://www.jostrust.org.uk/get-involved/campaign/cervical-cancer-prevention-week.

Please do adhere to current COVID guidelines when out and about. Use Coronavirus in Scotland from gov.scot for the latest news, and keep watching the Academy Medical Centre Facebook page.
