Time to Talk Day: 6th February 2020

Mental health problems affect one in four of us, yet too many people are made to feel isolated, ashamed and worthless because of this. Time to Talk Day encourages everyone to be more open about mental health – to talk, to listen, to change lives.

We know that talking about mental health can feel awkward, but it doesn't have to. This year, we're using the popular game 'Would you rather?' to help break the ice and get the conversation flowing.

CORONAVIRUS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The threat from coronavirus to our local population is currently extremely low and there is no need for alarm, however we do have the following advice if you have very recently been to China or in contact with anyone who has.

If you have an acute respiratory infection of any degree of severity including at least one of: fever, shortness of breath or cough AND you have lived in or travelled to Mainland China in the 14 days before onset of illness, please call NHS111 if possible rather than coming in to the surgery.

Under these circumstances, you are advised to stay at home if you are not too unwell whilst appropriate hospital transport can be arranged.

Even if you have no symptoms,  anyone who has had contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus in the last 14 days should be reported to the local health protection team immediately.  Again please do so via NHS 111 .

PARKRUN WALKING EVENT: Saturday 28th March

Parkruns happen every Saturday morning at 9am and we are delighted that Wycliffe Surgery is a Plymvalley Parkrun Practice.

We appreciate that running 5km may be a bit daunting for most people so walking events are arranged to get everyone involved. It is a wonderful community event and we welcome as many of our patients as possible to enjoy the experience with us. You can go at whatever speed you are comfortable with and there are always tailwalkers so you will never be alone. Dogs and children are also welcomed.

The next walking event at Plymvalley Parkrun is on Saturday the 28th March. Please join us! For more information visit the Parkrun Website
