NHS Self-Care Event

timline: {}

The NHS is going through many changes and no more so than in the Hinckley and Bosworth area.  One of the main aims of the Hinckley & Bosworth Medical Alliance is to make people more aware of the things patients can do to keep healthy.  Trips to the GP surgery can sometimes be avoided if people know what help there is available to keep healthy and how to treat minor ailments themselves.

Many new health services have been introduced and to help the public understand more of these an event is planned by your GP surgery, The LPT (Leicestershire Partnership Trust) who supply the District Nurses, the ILT (Integrated Locality Team), and the Hinckley & Bosworth Medical Alliance at the Mary Forrayn Centre Leicester Rd, Hinckley LE10 1LW on Sept 17th (3pm until 6pm).  Lots of services will have displays and experts in each area there to answer questions about what is on offer in the Hinckley & Bosworth area. 

One of the stalls at the event will be for representing FLiC (Family Lifestyle Club) - This is an 8 week course for families keen to learn more about becoming fit, healthy and managing their weight.

Some of the other services in attendance are

  • Loros – The Leicestershire Hospice Charity
  • Carers support - local support for all Carers of any age.
  • Pharmacist Support – Self Care Drugs
  • Patient Participation Groups – find out how you can have a voice at your GP surgery as well as learn something about extra services on offer.
  • …and many more

Everyone is welcome and light refreshments will be available.
