***** Dementia Friendly *****
Dementia Friends Training Session
Yesterday (31 May) we had our dementia awareness training with Kathy a Dementia Champion, here at Charnwood Surgery in Mountsorrel. We found this session to be very informative with a better understanding of a patient who has dementia and will improve our communication and actions with patients and their carers.

***** Appointments wasted *****
In April 2017 96% of patients attended their appointment for the GP or nurse.
13 patients do not attend their appointments which results in a total of 2 hours 25 mins of clinical time that was wasted. It's easy to cancel or re-arrange 01162375089 or register to use online services to make and cancel appointments and/or order repeat medication.
***** Learning Disability Awareness *****
Mencap in collaboration with NHS England are launching a campaign to raise awareness about learning disability. This is all about encouraging people with a learning disability to get better healthcare, by letting people know that doctors and other healthcare workers can provide extra support and advice. By making the GP aware of your learning disability they can add you to their register which means you will be offered extra support and annual health check.
