February is Heart Month!
February is National Heart Month. There are about 2.6 million people in the UK living with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). Every single one of us has a heart which means every one of us is at potential risk.
Understanding heart conditions isn’t an easy task – there are lots of different types and knowing how the heart works is more helpful when trying to learn about these conditions. But looking at the facts will benefit yourself and the people you love in the long run.
Managing your diet, keeping fit, and watching your blood pressure are just a few important factors. The British Heart Foundation’s webpage has information about heart diseases and how you can beat them. And, don’t forget to get your free fundraising kit!
We had 163 appointments which were not attended in January
Each of these appointments could have been used to help another patient if they had been cancelled in advance. Please let us know if you cannot attend your appointment. We can send you a reminder by text the day before your appointment, if you do not receive these and would like to please contact reception.
Evening surgeries and Saturday clinics
We offer one evening surgery each week. This provides pre-booked appointments between 6.30 and 8.30 for patients who are unable to attend during daytime surgery. Pre-bookable appointments are available in Thirsk Health Centre or the Lambert Medical Centre on Saturday mornings from 08.30 - 12 noon. read more...
