Grab your wellies and water-proof ponchos, because the Great British Summer Festival season is well and truly underway. People in Solihull can now benefit from top tips from NHS Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) so they can stay safe and healthy at summer festivals.
People in Solihull can take their first steps to get fit and healthy during Health Information Week which is taking place at The Core Library in Solihull from 3rd- 7th July. The Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Stuart Davis will open the event on Monday 3 July.
It feels like summer is almost here, and with all the outdoor events and fun it’s important to stay safe in the sun. Although the sun is an excellent source of Vitamin D it is important not to go outside into the sun without adequate protection.
Patients in Solihull are being encouraged to have a greater say in how local health services are being run by joining a Patient Participation Group (PPG) at their local GP practice.
The numbers of people being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes continues to rocket in Solihull with almost 2,000 more people registered with the disease in the last five years.
Between 2012 and 2017 an extra 1,900 people have been registered at local GPs with the disease, meaning there are now 13,953 people registered with Type 2 diabetes living in Solihull.
Knowledge is power, so NHS Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is backing Diabetes Awareness Week to encourage people in Solihull to join the fight against diabetes and be aware of the symptoms.
Diabetes Awareness Week takes place from 11 – 17 June. This year’s theme, ‘Know Diabetes, Fight Diabetes’, encourages you to put the power in your hands and be aware to either prevent you getting diabetes in the first place, or to learn how to live well with the condition.
Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group is supporting National Carers Week 2017 which runs from 12 June to 18 June 2017.
This year's theme is 'Building Carer Friendly Communities' and there will be a celebration of the vital contribution made by carers in Solihull.
