Noticeboard

We have closed our Willen site to our own patients so that it can be used as a HUB for MKHealth Extra, who will see the overspill of patients from all practices in MK. There is no walk-in service available at that site. We have moved our urgent care service back to our Newport Pagnell site. Your appointments will still be on the telephone with a clinician, if they feel you need to be seen you will be asked to come to the Newport Pagnell site to see our urgent care team. You will be asked to wait in your car until the clinician is ready, they will call you on your mobile phone and ask you to come to the door of our Health Education room (the side door before our main entrance). These precautions are to maintain minimum footfall within the Medical Centre and we ask for your understanding during these changes. The main doors at NPMC are still closed to patients entering the building. If you are invited to attend an appointment we would ask that you come alone; the exceptions to this will be the need for a parent or carer. If a parent or carer will also be attending, we shall ask for their name and they will also undergo the screening questions. We have not taken this decision lightly and your support with this decision is much appreciated

Smart Swap

A new Change4Life campaign ‘Smart Swap’ launches in  January to encourage families to make one easy swap to help cut sugar and fat from their everyday snacks, drinks and meals.  Adverts will run on TV, radio with a focus on five simple Smart Swaps:



    • Sugary drinks to diet, sugar free or no added sugar drinks or to low fat milk or water

    • Cheese to reduced fat cheese

    • Butter to lower fat butters or spreads

    • Sugary cereal to low sugar cereal, for example, plain whole wheat cereal biscuits, plain shredded whole grain or plain porridge

    • Whole milk to semi-skimmed; or semi-skimmed to 1% fat or skimmed milk

 Health Harms

The Health Harms campaign reminds smokers about the physical damage caused by smoking, TV and digital advertising will feature ‘Rotten Roll-up’ and ‘Mutations’ adverts as in previous years to clearly illustrate the harm caused by all forms of smoking  - rolls up and bought cigarettes. It will dramatize the immediate harm caused by every single cigarette and make the invisible damage visible.

The campaign will capitalise on seasonal motivation to make healthy changes including stopping smoking.

The advertising will encourage smokers to search Smokefree for free and proven support in the form of the Quit Kit, Smokefree app, text and emails,
