FREE NHS Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) Screening for men aged 65+ (08/06/2017)

where there is more information in order that you are able to make an informed decision as to whether you wish to refer into this programme. Currently, this particular NHS screening programme is not available for ladies, as the prevalence of AAA’s is five times higher in the male population.

13A Electrical Socket Insert (23/08/2016)

You will notice that we at the practice have removed all the electrical socket inserts. An alert was sent by the NHS England and we were adviced that all 13A electrical socket insert should not be used in health and social care premises, nor supplied for use in home and residence. We were adviced to withdraw and dispose any socket currently in use.

Problem / background

It is a requirement of the IET Wiring Regulations - BS7671:2008 (2015), that socket outlets have shutters and preferably be of a type complying with BS1363. Electrical sockets that are manufactured to BS1363 (13A wall socket-outlets, multi way adaptors and flexible extensions) must have an interlocking shutter mechanism to stop the insertion of foreign material into the socket tubes. The BS1363 standard also sets a distance which a plug pin has to be inserted before coming in contact with live parts.   Socket covers are not constructed to any electrical or other safety standard. The pins on the socket covers may be larger than the socket tubes which can cause damage to the socket and defeat the safety design of BS 1363.  In certain circumstances the insertion of socket covers, or their breakage whilst in use, can allow foreign objects to be inserted directly onto live parts within the socket, thus presenting a high risk of electric shock.

Accessible Information Standard (15/07/2016)

The Accessible Information Standard (AIS) is a new NHS England information standard which must be implemented by all organisations that provide NHS or adult social care.

We want to know if you need information in braille, large print or easy read.

We want to know if you need a British Sign Language interpreter or advocate.

We want to know if we can support you to lipread or use a hearing aid or communication tool.

Please tell the receptionist when you arrive for your next appointment, or call us on 01926 612232 between 8.30am – 6.30pm.

This information will be recorded on your medical record in a standardised way and highlighted to ensure we have information on your communication needs.

Meningitis B

A new vaccine to prevent meningitis is being offered to babies as part of the routine NHS childhood vaccination programme

The Men B vaccine is recommended for babies aged 2 months, followed by a second dose at 4 months, and a booster at 12 months.

The Men B vaccine will protect your baby against infection by meningococcal group B bacteria, which are responsible for more than 90% of meningococcal infections in young children.

Meningococcal infections can be very serious, causing meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning), which can lead to severe brain damage, amputations and, in some cases, death.

Meningitis and septicaemia caused by meningococcal group B bacteria can affect people of any age, but is most common in babies and young children.

The new programme makes England the first country in the world to offer a national, routine and publicly funded Men B vaccination programme.

Men ACWY

Young teenagers, sixth formers and 'fresher' students going to university for the first time are advised to have a vaccination to prevent meningitis W disease.

The Men ACWY vaccine is given by a single injection into the upper arm and protects against four different causes of meningitis and septicaemia  meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases.

There are two Men ACWY vaccines called Nimenrix and Menveo. They are very similar and both work equally well.
