RACE TO THE PYRAMIDS

We have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 

 

Please see the following link:

 

https://mydonate.bt.com/events/racetothepyramids/461236

 

In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!

Dr Atkinson, Dr Scullard and Dr Homer

Carers

Are you an unpaid carer?

 

You are an unpaid carer if you support a family member or friend who is ill, disabled, elderly, has poor mental health or misuses substances. The support you offer may be emotional or include shopping, cooking, dealing with medication, or attending medical appointments with the person you care for.  The person you care for could live with you, in their own home, or even in residential care.

 

It is important that you let the practice know if you look after someone. You can be added to our practice ‘carer register’ and gain access to information and support, this includes access to our Carer Champions.  Carer Champions are members of the practice staff who help with the identification of carers, act as a voice for carers within the practice andare a key point of contact for carer information. 

 

Our Carer Champions are Diane Rowley and Jayne Daykin and are available for information on your caring role and appropriate signposting to services.
