This winter (2014/15) we encouraged local people to ‘Think first’ in our seasonal health campaign designed to help people get the right care faster during the busy winter period. You may have received one of the attached leaflets and seen our posters and bus adverts in the city.
We are now looking for your feedback and need your views and comments on the campaign to help us plan for next winter.
Details of pharmacies open in Southampton over the Easter Bank Holiday (Good Friday 3rd April, Easter Sunday 5th April and Easter Monday 6th April) are available on our website.
Your community is working with the NHS and City Council to make a difference to your health and wellbeing!
That’s the message from NHS Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Southampton City Council who have begun an initiative with local community and faith groups to help local people get the maximum benefit to their health and wellbeing from what is already going on in their communities.
NHS Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Sue Robinson as its new Clinical Chair.
The move will continue the increased involvement of family doctors and other clinicians in buying and planning local health services for people who live in the City. Dr Robinson was elected by fellow City GPs following the retirement of Dr Steve Townsend, who has held the position since the CCG was formally established in April 2013. She will formally take up her post on 1 April 2015.
Have you stocked up on the medicine you need ahead of the bank holiday?
That’s the question being asked by local GPs who are urging people in Southampton to plan ahead for their medicines this bank holiday.
