Self-care NHS event has been launched
An NHS self-care event has been launched across Hinckley and Bosworth to make patients more aware of the things they can do to keep healthy.
Trips to the GP 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, free events have been introduced by local GP surgeries, the Leicestershire Partnership Trust who supply the District Nurses, the Integrated Locality Team and the Hinckley and Bosworth Medical Alliance.
Lots of services will showcase displays, and experts will be on-hand to answer questions about what is on offer at the event, which will take place at the Mary Forrayn Centre on Leicester Road, Hinckley on Monday September 17 from 3pm until 6pm.
Other services who will be in attendance include Loros, Carers support, Pharmacist support and Patient Participation Groups.
Everyone is welcome to the self-care event and light refreshments will be available.
