Cases of Measles are on the rise. It is an infectious virus that causes a rash and can be very serious. Download information on Measles to understand the risks, symptoms and need for vacination.

Measles Information

The earlier bowel cancer is spotted, the more treatable it’s likely to be. In fact, more than 9 in 10 people survive bowel cancer when it is diagnosed at the earliest stage. However, this drops significantly when diagnosed at the latest stage.

MMR
Campaign

The uptake figures of the MMR vaccination has been in decline for over ten years, with on average at least one in ten children unvaccinated and at risk of becoming seriously unwell. In some areas this is as high as four in ten children.

NHSE are launching a national call / recall inviting those not fully vaccinated to come forward to catch up on missed doses of the MMR vaccination.

Gardening Group
Wellbeing Project at Sutton Manor

Sutton Manor Surgery Project - raised beds

Our Health & Wellbeing Team have announced news about an exciting new initiative which has started at The Sutton Manor Surgery.

Sarah Capes, Health & Wellbeing Team Leader who runs the project said,

“There is a strong and growing evidence that nature based social prescribing plays an important role in improving mental and physical health and reducing loneliness. With this in mind, we have set up a gardening group at Sutton Manor Surgery open to patients and the surrounding community to help tackle loneliness and isolation through activities that also benefit the surrounding wildlife.

"We have received support from the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, local community allotments and Men in Sheds to gather inspiration for the plot of land with our first priority being raised beds for vegetable growing. We are happy for more patients to join the group if they are interested in getting involved. The Sutton Manor site gives an idea of what we would like to achieve”.

Social Prescribing Day

Social Prescribing Day

As part of Social Prescribing Day 2024, the BeWell Community Link Workers were based in Bransholme Centre to speak to people about Social Prescribing, the benefits this can have, and referral processes should they want support.

If you would like to be involved in the gardening project, please speak to a member of staff in your practice for more details.

The plan envisages raised strawberry beds, an area for seasonal crops, lavender plants and beds for gooseberries, rhubarb, and more.  In addition to a flower box, the plan highlights a wall of brambles - whilst the south-facing terrace will feature climbing plants - including clematis, jasmine and roses!
