Jo’s Trust - Cervical Cancer Prevention Week 20-26 January 2020

 

This week is the annual Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust cervical cancer prevention week and we encourage you to share information in the attached briefing about prevention of cervical cancer and how people can reduce their risk.

 

The lifetime risk of developing cervical cancer is 1/139 for women in the UK.  Cervical cancer incidence decreased by nearly half between the late 1980s until the early 2000s, but the last decade has seen an increase in rates in younger women.  The most effective form of prevention is regular screening along with HPV immunisation from age 12.

Fax Machine at the surgery:
Please note in line with GDPR we are no longer using a fax machine at the surgery. If you are a patient please register for online services via reception to order repeat prescriptions. For further information please contact the surgery.

Norovirus, which causes diarrhoea and vomiting, can be very unpleasant but it usually clears up by itself in a few days.  You can normally look after yourself or your child at home.  Try to avoid going to your GP, as norovirus can spread to others very easily.
