October Awareness Campaigns

promoting health and wellbeing

From your Patient Participation Group (PPG)

Posted: 8 October 2021 · Practice news

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

The PPG would like to highlight the following in October:

  • Breast Cancer Awareness: Check out CoppaFeel and www.macmillan.org.uk for what to look out for when checking your body for lumps and bumps. Also visit www.breastcancernow.org.
  • Self-Care Awareness: Not just this month but every month. Look after your own health as best you can by eating healthily, exercising, reduce smoking and alcohol etc will all help to reduce your risk of many types of illness. Also remember the pharmacist is a good source of help for minor ailment.

Remember to take up the opportunity to have your flu jag when it is available to you. Keep your eye on the web site so that you can book an appointment.
