Driving Diabetes
7th Jun

Diabetes and Driving

If you are Diabetic and treat your diabetes with insulin, hypoglycemia whilst driving may be one of your biggest concerns.

Having a hypo whilst driving is both frightening and dangerous so it’s important that hypoglycemia is avoided.

If you have type 2 diabetes and treat your diabetes with certain tablets, there is also the chance that you may experience a hypo whilst driving.

How to Avoid become hypo whilst driving:
  • Always test your blood sugar before driving
  • Take regular breaks to test your blood sugar
  • Do not drive with blood sugar levels under 5 mmol/L
  • If you have a bad hypo, treat the hypo, and do not drive until 45 minutes after your blood sugar has risen above 5 mmol/L
  • Avoid driving when tired or on medications that may cause drowsiness
  • Have glucose tablets or sweets to hand
  • Never drink and drive

It is recommended to take a break at least every 2 hours to test your blood sugar and to have a carbohydrate based snack if needed.

Stay educated and aware!

A 'finger up the bum' isn't needed to test for Prostate Cancer. But 46% of men still think they need one.
 
Recent research by Prostate Cancer UK shows this is one of the biggest barriers stopping men from taking the potentially life-saving action to check their risk.
 
It's about time we broke it down.
The best test is a simple blood test.

🍼 Bump in the Road Campaign - Support For New Parents 👶

A new Bump in the Road campaign has launched in Derbyshire to shed light on the challenges many people face during the early stages of parenthood, whilst also providing practical self-care advice and support to parents.
 
It is being delivered by Derbyshire Family Health Service, part of Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, with a Bump in the Road podcast series featuring candid conversations with parents, health visitors, and health psychologists, as well as online resources: Parent and carer mental health derbyshirefamilyhealthservice.nhs.uk
 
Dr Claire Scothern, a clinical psychologist at Derbyshire Family Health Service, said: “Pregnancy and parenting can be an incredible journey, but it also comes with its share of bumps and hurdles. From sleepless nights to navigating new responsibilities, many parents and carers find themselves grappling with the mental and emotional strains that come with having a baby, whether it’s their first, second or more.
 
The Bump in the Road campaign aims to raise awareness of these struggles and provide parents and carers with the tools they need to prioritise their mental wellbeing. Through a combination of self-care practices, practical advice, and support resources, Derbyshire Family Health Service is dedicated to helping parents look after their mental wellbeing on their parenting journey. The podcast episodes delve into a range of topics including managing stress and anxiety, seeking support when needed, and personal stories from other parents.

Hayfever NHS

Hayfever

Hay fever, also known as Allergic Rhinitis, whilst very unpleasant doesn't usually require the attention of a Doctor and can be treated with medications that are available over-the-counter.
 
Our clinicians are unable to prescribe any medications that aren't already available to you at your pharmacy who can give advice and suggest the best treatments, like antihistamine drops, tablets or nasal sprays for both adults and children.
 
Stay Well Derbyshire have put together the following guidance to help you manage symptoms:
 
  • Keep house and car windows closed, especially when the pollen count is high (early morning between 7am to 9am and evenings between 5pm and 7pm)
  • Avoid large grassy areas, woodland, cutting the grass, pollutants and car fumes
  • Wear wrap-around sunglasses
  • When you get in from outside wash your hands, face, hair, rinse your eyes and change your clothes
  • If possible stay indoors when the pollen count is high
  • Use petroleum jelly inside your nose to block inhalation of pollen
  • Keep your house clean and wear a mask and glasses when doing house work
  • Don’t dry washing outside to avoid pollen sticking to your clothes

Cervical Screening Awareness Week 2024
29th Jan

𝙒𝙃𝘼𝙏 𝘼𝙍𝙀 𝙏𝙃𝙀 𝙎𝙔𝙈𝙋𝙏𝙊𝙈𝙎 𝙊𝙁 𝘾𝙀𝙍𝙑𝙄𝘾𝘼𝙇 𝘾𝘼𝙉𝘾𝙀𝙍?

Cervical cancer may not cause any symptoms or the symptoms may not be obvious. The most common symptoms of cervical cancer include:
  • Vaginal bleeding that is unusual for you: if you have regular periods, unusual vaginal bleeding happens any time outside of your regular period. It may happen between periods, during or after sex or after the menopause.
  • Changes to vaginal discharge: Changes can include it looking different – for example, becoming much thicker or changing colour, or smelling different – particularly if it smells unpleasant.
  • Pain or discomfort during sex: Sex may be painful for lots of reasons, but to reassure you and so sex can become more comfortable, it is important to contact your GP and tell them about the pain.
  • Pain in your lower back or between your hipbones: it is a good idea to tell your GP about this pain if there is no obvious reason for it, it is affecting your day-to-day life or it lasts for 2 to 3 weeks or longer.
It is important to remember that these symptoms usually happen for reasons other than cervical cancer. But it is also important to contact your GP straight away, so they can give you reassurance and support.

Here Harmeet describes the moment she knew she needed help for her mental health, written as a note to self on her phone to encourage others to seek help.
 
Harmeet suffered from postnatal depression after the birth of her daughter, and over time felt her mental health deteriorating.
Her GP referred her for counselling through NHS Talking Therapies, and later she self-referred for cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which put her on the path to getting better. When Harmeet suffered a miscarriage, she was able to use the techniques she learned through the process to cope with the loss.
 
NHS Talking Therapies can help if you’re struggling with feelings of depression, excessive worry, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress or obsessions and compulsions.

Patient Alert - ADHD Medication
24th Oct 2023

ADHD Medication Shortage

We want to make patients aware that there are global problems with the availability and supply of a range of medication used to treat ADHD.

This is an issue beyond the control of Primary Care and Pharmacy services.

The supply disruption of these products is caused by a combination of manufacturing issues and an increase in demand to manage ADHD. At present we do not know when these issues are likely to resolve.

Medications affected by the supply issues are:-

       Methylphenidate:

  • Equasym XL®10, 20 and 30 mg capsules
  • Xaggitin XL®18 and 36 mg prolonged-release tablets
  • Concerta XL®54 mg prolonged-release tablets
  • Xenidate XL®27 mg prolonged-release tablets

       Lisdexamfetamine:

  • Elvanse®20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 mg capsules
  • Elvanse®Adult 30, 50, and 70 mg capsules

       Guanfacine:

  • Intuniv®1, 2, 3 and 4 mg prolonged-release tablets

*If you are affected by these supply issues you would need to contact the service who initiated your medications... i.e. the Community Mental Health Team, CAHMS, SAANS or other private providers*

Medicines Order Line - Update

Message from MOL
 
The Medicines Order Line are constantly looking at ways to make improvements to benefit our service users. Therefore, we have recently trialled a new online ordering form which will eventually supersede the call back service we currently provide.
 
We are now pleased to announce that we are rolling out the Online Ordering form to all practices on board with the MOL.
 
Patients can use the Online Ordering form to order their prescriptions in the same way as phoning or emailing us. The benefits of the online form include:
  • · No need for the MOL to call the patient back. Prescription requests can be processed directly from the online form (unless any discrepancies)
· No requirement for the patient to create an account
· No requirement for the patient to have a log in
· Not limited to a timeframe. Ability to use 24/7
· Patients can order on behalf of family/friends
· Online ordering form requests will be processed within 48hours (as per same process as the call back emails)
 
The online ordering form is available via:-
 
We are hopeful that this new online ordering form will help with Christmas pressures in the coming months.
Face Mask
16th Oct 2023

Mask Update by the NHS Derby & Derbyshire ICB

Due to the increase in Covid19 related outbreaks, we have been asked to return to mask wearing in Practice by the NHS Derby & Derbyshire ICB.

Staff will be wearing masks around the building, and Clinicians will be wearing them during appointments.

To reduce the risk of transmission, we encourage patients to do the same, particularly if you has respiratory symptoms.
This is to minimise disruption to our service and ensure those most vulnerable are still protected when accessing care.

Other things you can do to keep yourself protected this winter:
 
๐Ÿค Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
 
๐Ÿก Keep your home well-ventilated by opening windows or using air purifiers to reduce the risk of airborne transmission.
 
๐Ÿ‘ซ Avoid crowded environments if you are unwell or at high risk of becoming unwell from contracting COVID or other winter respiratory illnesses
 
๐Ÿฅฆ Boost your immune system by eating a balanced diet, staying physically active and getting enough sleep.
 

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

The Team at Welbeck Road Health Centre.

The 5th of July 2023 marks 75 years of the National Health Service!
 
Treating over a million people a day in England, the NHS touches all of our lives. When it was founded in 1948, the NHS was the first universal health system to be available to all, free at the point of delivery.
 
Today, nine in 10 people agree that healthcare should be free of charge, more than four in five agree that care should be available to everyone, and that the NHS makes them most proud to be British.
 
Did you know that the NHS is one of the largest employers in the world? And with 1.3 million staff, it is the biggest employer in Europe.

Chesterfield Royal Hospital - NEW Emergency Department 2023
21st Jun 2023

New Emergency Department Opens at Chesterfield Royal Hospital

A Once in a Lifetime Trip (hopefully)…

Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust’s new Emergency Department is opening on Wednesday (21st June 2023) but they don’t want you to visit, unless you really need to.

The new development, with its state-of-the-art approach to patient flow, highly spec’d equipment, ultra-modern technology and a real grounding in the community through the locally sourced artwork and wayfinding will be jewel in Chesterfield’s crown but it’s vital that people only visit if they truly need to.

Dr Katherine Lendrum, Clinical Lead for the UECD and ED Consultant, commented further: “The new Emergency Department is an absolutely amazing facility which will provide our local population with Emergency Care when they really need it!

We genuinely hope we don’t need to see people but if someone needs us, we will be there and do our absolute best to give high quality care in a timely manner.

Emergency departments are open 24/7 365 days a year; they are staffed by a large team of nurses and clinicians (doctors and allied health professionals) who have expertise in immediately life or limb threatening emergencies.”

Dr Hal Spencer, Chief Executive of the Trust, said: “This is a truly fantastic facility for the hospital and the communities we serve. With clinical leadership, engagement at all levels and years of planning, I’m very proud of the skills, experience and hard work that have gone into shaping our new Emergency Department. We are on time in opening the facility and have delivered on budget, with building work starting during Covid. It is testament to a great team who have worked tirelessly to deliver this work. Thank you to everybody.”

Dr Anthony Kenny, Programme Director for the Emergency Department development, said: “The new department has the ability to live monitor patients, it has a dedicated children and young people’s area and a specialist zone for neurodiverse patients or those experiencing a mental health crisis, all of which mean we are providing a truly world-class facility for the region. The area above the department is one of the proudest ‘added extra’ elements; we have a state-of-the-art simulation suite and facilities which will support ED colleagues in providing the best possible care including modern changing and break-out rooms.”

Dr Lendrum concluded: “Sometimes (in up to 70% of attendances) people choose to come to an emergency department with less urgent problems - perhaps because they don’t know where to go or because they perceive they will be seen quicker; get all the tests they need done or be treated faster. 

Problems that have lasted many days, weeks or months, that you would like a second opinion on or are already being managed by another team often do not fit into an emergency category.

If you feel well enough to have your tea before coming to an ED think again - could my problem be managed by someone else better tomorrow?! It is everyone’s responsibility to use health care services wisely. ”

Alternative sources of help for less urgent problem, particularly out of hours include NHS111, local pharmacies and urgent treatment centres. 

For those wanting to see the new department, the Trust will be launching a series of tours and photographs – including a click through view of each area and tours from colleagues at the Trust (available on the Trust website by clicking here from 21st June).

Hayfever NHS
13th Jun 2023

Struggling with Hay Fever?

The evenings are lighter, the blooms are brighter and the days are warmer.
 
#Hayfever, also known as Allergic Rhinitis, whilst very unpleasant doesn't usually require the attention of a Doctor and can be treated with medications that are available over-the-counter. Our clinicians are unable to prescribe any medications that aren't already available to you at your pharmacy who can give advice and suggest the best treatments, like antihistamine drops, tablets or nasal sprays for both adults and children.
 
NHS Stay Well Derbyshire have put together the following guidance to help you manage symptoms.
  • Keep house and car windows closed, especially when the pollen count is high (early morning between 7am to 9am and evenings between 5pm and 7pm)

Hot Weather 2023
12th Jun 2023

Beat the Heat 2023

Temperatures are expected to be high this week and whilst many of us look forward to this, high temperatures can be dangerous for some people.
 
Please look out for people who may be more vulnerable from heat, including the very young, older people and those who find it difficult to alter their behaviour or homes.

See the information resources below to use for any events that may be planned to ensure that you consider the effects of heat in your planning.
 
Guidance and information can be found here: Beat the heat: staying safe in hot weather - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
 
Please ensure people are encouraged to:

Consider...

- access to shade,

- monitoring for dehydration and ensuring access to fluids: remind people to drink regularly

- change activities to avoid the hottest times of the day 11am-3pm

- wearing appropriate clothing when outside: loose fitting clothes to cover up, wide brimmed hat, sunglasses and suncream

- close windows and curtains in rooms that face the sun: open windows when the air is cooler outside than inside and then try to get air flowing through your homeโ€‹/venue

- know how to spot the signs of heat exhaustion, dehydration or heatstroke and know what to do

World Narcissistic Abuse Awareness Day
1st Jun 2023

World Narcissistic Abuse Day

The June 1st 2023, is Narcissistic Abuse Day, one of the lesser talked about awareness days but arguably one of the most important.

According to the ONS, in 2021-2022 across Derbyshire there were 15,945 cases of domestic abuse-related crimes recorded by the police (this includes emotional and physical abuse) and sadly, these are just the crimes that are reported, many cases will go unreported for fear of repercussions.

Because of it’s nature, coercive or narcissistic abuse often goes unnoticed by victims and their families and friends. Unlike physical abuse, narcissistic abuse leaves no physical marks, it is invisible and difficult to prove. Yet, its effects are lasting and just as a damaging as physical abuse.

The Elm Foundation operates across Chesterfield, North East Derbyshire, Bolsover, and parts of Amber Valley and they provide domestic abuse support services across the community irrespective of a person’s age, sex, ethnicity, disability, gender identity or immigration status.

Signs of Narcissistic Abuse:

  1. Love-bombing
    "A love bomb is a manipulation technique used most often by narcissists, and even cult leaders, to gain power over someone... They bomb you with affection, excessive attention and gifts to ‘lure you in.’ The intention is to make their victim helpless, vulnerable and indebted to them.” -Jerimya Fox

  2. Gaslighting
    Intentionally distorting reality to make you feel like what you’re seeing or feeling isn’t real. Examples of Gaslighting may look like this:

    "You're crazy, that never happened"

    "I never said that"
    "It's All In Your Head"

  3. Ignoring Boundaries
    "The first thing to remember about narcissists is they need to be in control and they also need to be right. Boundaries get in the way of both things. They can’t control the narrative if you’ve put a roadblock in their way. When you set a boundary, they see it as you questioning what they’re doing. How dare you question them! They’re always right! And then they just bulldoze straight through the boundary like it was tissue paper." -Love with Intelligence

  4. Character Assassination
    A classic Narcissistic Abuse tactic that does exactly what it says on the tin. Deliberate exaggeration or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the victim which can leave you feeling isolated, misunderstood, and unfairly judged.

  5. Accusations
    Accusations can be used by an abuser to manipulate you into doing what they want. "When you’re in a relationship with a narcissistic abuser, you may be accused of lying, stealing, cheating, or other negative behaviors. Being wrongfully accused can put you on the defensive, which can help deflect from the behaviors and actions of an abuser." -Talk Space

  6. Emotional Blackmail
    Emotional Blackmail is a manipulative tool, using your weaknesses, secrets or vulnerabilities against you to get what they want from you. Emotional Blackmail can look like this:

    "If you leave me, I'll kill myself"
    "You'll never see the kids again"
    "If you actually cared about me, you would do..."

  7. Projecting
    "Narcissists can’t accept responsibility for anything that goes wrong. So if something isn’t working, and they want control over the situation, they literally put their feelings on you. Since narcissists live in fantasy worlds, they refuse to see their own faults and failures, which means the blame that would usually be placed on them is projected onto their victims" -Reach Out Recovery

     

    Always phone 999 in a life threatening situation.

Bowel Cancer Screening - Life Saving Poo
3rd Apr 2023

Bowel Cancer Screening

In a new ‘Help Us, Help You’ campaign that is the first of its kind nationally, NHS England is encouraging people who have been sent an NHS bowel cancer screening kit to complete the test.

Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK, and detecting it at the earliest stage makes you up to nine times more likely to be successfully treated. But, almost one third of people who were sent an NHS bowel cancer screening test in England last year did not go on to complete it. Just a tiny sample detects signs of cancer before you notice anything wrong. The test is simple to complete and can be done in the privacy of your own bathroom.

Anyone aged 60 to 74, who lives in England and is registered with a GP practice will be sent a test in the post automatically, every two years. NHS England is also extending this to include all 50 to 59 year-olds by 2025.

So, the NHS is asking anyone who is sent a bowel cancer screening test to remember to complete it. Put it by the loo.

Don’t put it off. Your next poo could save your life.

Visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/bowel-cancer-screening/ for more information.

Thr1ve's aim as link workers is to help young people to feel better about themselves and their lives by making opportunities accessible. Through a non-judgemental, solution focused approach, we support young people to grow in confidence through changes in mindset and behaviour.

Patient Feedback Survey

28/07/2022 - THIS SURVEY IS NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU.

We are in the process of collating patient feedback to help us design the revised "Extended Access" service, which is contractually up for renewal in October 2022. This service will help us consider what appointments would be most worthwhile for our patients outside of core hours (either in evenings or at a weekend). It would be greatly appreciated if you could complete the following survey so that feedback can be collated.

Many thanks,

The Team at Welbeck Road Health Centre
