Mcmillan Coffee Morning
Today our Administrator, Harriet, organised a Mcmillan Coffee morning raising funds to help continue the excellent work Mcmillan do. Staff enjoyed some lovely home baked goods and coffee. Thanks to Harriet for organising and to all those who spent time baking and who contributed.
All of our staff have taken part in CPR training this month (February 2019). For some of our new staff this was their first time. The training provided was excellent and was enjoyed by all the team. This training is compulsory for all staff and equips them with valuable, potentially life saving skills.
Dr Clare Morris has started a monthly walking group to encourage staff and patients to get active and enjoy green spaces to realise the health benefits of this. The first one was held on Tuesday 22nd May 2018, with the next due Tuesday 26nd June. All are welcome. The walk will be led by Dr Carmichael along with lots of the team, in Dr Morris' absence so please come along still.
Our practice team work very well together providing support across all our different roles. We understand the wide role a GP surgery plays in society and are looking for ways to offer greater support to our community.
Our Practice Manager, Lisa took part in a local litter pick at Fearnville fields in May. So much goes on in our locality for people to get involved in.
Last November a team of staff and their families joined in the local Mo run in support of men's health. We plan to continue opportunities to support such good causes and raise awareness of important issues. Men's health is a vitally important area and one often neglected by men and the health services which are often not tailored to provide the ideal approach for them.
