YOUNG CARERS

If you are a Young Carer looking after a family member please let us know. The Practice can offer support and put you in touch with the Young Carers Trust. They can offer support and advice when you need it.

THE LITTLE ORANGE BOOK

Our babies and children are so precious to us. When they're unwell, we worry about what's wrong and what we can do to help them. We want them to get better as soon as possible.

The Little Orange Book contains advice and tips on how to manage common illnesses and problems that babies and young children often experience in the first 5 years of their lives. It also has information on more serious conditions, what to look out for and how to get help.

This book was produced by Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commissioning Group with invaluable help from GP's, Health Visitor's, Practice Managers and Staff, Pharmacists, Paediatricians, Children's Nurses and Parents and Carers.

Parenting can be a fantastically rewarding experience but has also been described as 'the hardest job in the world'.

We hope The Little Orange Book makes this job a little bit easier.

When you are next in the practice pick up a copy of The Little Orange Book from reception to keep at home.

SAME DAY HELP FOR YOUR POORLY CHILD

If your child has become unwell in the last few days and you would like advice then please contact the surgery and we will arrange for a clinician to speak to you and if necessary see your child, today - this could save you an unnecessary trip to

A + E or a Walk-in Centre.

The new General Data Protection Regulation 2018 starts today, 25.05.2018. We have updated our posters and leaflets in the practice and have attached this information regarding Patient and Employee Data.
