Self-care NHS event has been launched

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

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.
