LEAVING SCHOOL OR COLLEGE?

Whatever you do next, get your MenACWY vaccine and check you are up to date with the MMR vaccine which helps protect you from measles mumps and rubella. 

The MenACWY vaccine helps protect you against meningococcal disease which can cause meningitis (inflammation of the brain) and septicaemia (blood poisoning).  These can kill in hours and those who recover may be left severely disabled.

Getting the MenACWY vaccine from your GP practice and knowing the symptoms of meningitis could save your life

More information about both vaccines can be found at the NHS Choices website or through speaking to the nurse or GP in the surgery.  A full description of the signs and symptoms of meningitis and septicaemia can be found at www.meningitis.org and www.meningitisnow.org

NEW SERVICE  - NORFOLK HEALTHY CHILD PROGRAMME

3 1/2 years School Readiness Health Check

We are delighted to tell you about a new service available to you and your child when they are aged 3 1/2 years.

As part of Norfolk County Council's commitment to the development of children, we are now offering a School Readiness Health Check to children registered with this practice aged 3 1/2 years.

The aim of the School Readiness Health Check is to help us identify, with you, if your child needs any additional support to help prepare them for starting school.

We can advise you where to get help for your child with communication, socialising, physical exercise, nutrition, dental health and continence.

We will work with your Health Visitor and share this information (with your consent) to try and give your child the best possible start to beginning school.

The new School Readiness Health Check will be part of the Pre-School Immunisation Appointment and will take approximately an additional 10 minutes to complete.  That will be a 20 minute appointment in total.

If you have not already received your appointment,

please ask the Receptionist to make this for you with the Practice Team.

WHAT IS AN NHS HEALTH CHECK?

The NHS Health Check is your chance to get your free midlife MOT.  For adults in England aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition, it checks your circulatory and vascular health and what your risk of getting a disabling vascular disease is. 

Why should I get checked?

As you get older, we have a higher risk of developing something dangerous like high blood pressure, heart disease or type 2 diabetes.  Your NHS Health check can spot early signs and help prevent these happening to you, which means you'll be more likely to enjoy life for longer. 


NAMED GP FOR ALL PATIENTS

All patients including children at Trinity & Bowthorpe Medical Practice have a named, accountable GP who is responsible for your overall care at the practice.  Our practice list has been divided between the available doctors.

Patients will still be free to choose to see any GP or nurse in the practice in line with the current arrangements.

If you wish to know who your named GP is please contact the practice.
