April is Stress Awareness Month

We all know what its like to feel stressed, but it`s not easy to pin down exactly what stress means.

If you are experiencing stress you may feel irritable, nervous, have racing thoughts, feel exhausted, have low motivation or feel neglected or lonely.

Mind have lots of ways you can help yourself and how to get support. 👇


CPCS Service

Do you know about the new GP CPCS service (Community Pharmacist Consultation Service)

The surgery can refer you to your local pharmacy, the pharmacist will offer you a private consultation, either by phone or face to face, for certain minor medical issues. Upon receipt of the referral the pharmacist will contact you within 2-3 hours. If they’re unable to help and you need to be seen by a doctor, the referral will be sent back to your GP to book you an appointment.

We have recently started using this service at our UoS Health Centre.
