Supporting Gypsy, Roma and traveller month
It’s Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month! Once again we celebrate the culture, history and heritage of these communities.
During the pandemic we have been working hard to make sure that our traveller communities are supported through initiatives.
- there have been texts sent to the community
- Vulnerable patients in that BAME community assessed and supported
- Social prescribing referrals done
- Regular & upscaled proactive care in place

Alert- possible cervical screening text messaging scam
We are aware of a possible scam. Some women are being contacted by text message, claiming to be from the call and recall service to advise they are overdue for screening. The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.
These messages are NOT from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.
The Action Fraud Line has been contacted.
If you are unsure please call the practice to check if you are due for your cervical screening.
mental health awareness week
With everything that is going on right now, it's more important than ever that we think about our wellbeing. Even if you are working remotely right now, Mental Health Awareness Week is still a great opportunity to share wellbeing tips and resources. Despite being physically apart right now, we can still share our personal experiences and offer each other support.
From virtual fundraising ideas to help bring your team together, and finding fun ways to pass the time, we also have a vast range of information and tips which you can share with your colleagues on how they can continue to take care of their mental health during the pandemic.
