Take action for a healthy heart

26th September 2013

This year’s ‘World Heart Day’ on 29 September is being supported by West Leicestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (WL CCG) and East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group (ELR CCG).

The CCGS are working together with GP surgeries and local partnership organisations to help people understand the risks of developing heart disease and how it can be prevented.

It is estimated that one in 20 people in Leicestershire and Rutland suffer from coronary heart disease, and the rate is likely to rise as more people live longer.

Patients to get new electronic records to boost emergency care

25th September 2013

Thousands of patients are now being offered new electronic care records to support their treatment when they need urgent, out-of-hours or emergency care.

Summary Care Records (SCRs) are brief personal medical records designed to offer people faster and safer care when they are treated at A&E, by out-of-hours clinicians or in urgent care centres.
