PREVENT MENINGITIS W

Young teenagers, sixth formers and 'fresher' students going to university for the first time are now routinely offered a vaccination to prevent meningitis W disease. The Men ACWY vaccine protects against four different causes of meningitis and septicaemia - meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases. All 17- and 18-year-olds in school year 13 and first-time university students up to the age of 25 are eligible for the Men ACWY vaccine as part of the standard NHS vaccination programme.

 

There's further information at http://www.nhs.uk/ (search for "men ACWY") and about meningitis generally at Meningitis Now (https://www.meningitisnow.org/). If you are eligible, to arrange your vaccination, please ring the surgery on (01745) 583208 and book an appointment with one of the practice nurses.

Why quit smoking?

Let’s face it, there’s lots of reasons why it’s a good idea to stop smoking. Over time your health deteriorates and your wallet feels the burn too. But even though quitting won’t be the easiest thing you’ll ever do, we reckon it will be up there with the best.

Smokers come from all walks of life, each with their own reasons for wanting to quit. For some it’s part of a lifestyle change – the be healthier and fitter. For others, it’s more about how their smoking affects the people around them – their family and little ones.

Whatever your reason, thinking carefully about your motivation and reminding yourself during your quit, can really help you through the tough time.
