Doctors are urging people to remember that NHS services are still there for them over the long bank holiday weekend, whatever their need.
Although Covid-19 is still a big priority for health services everywhere, the NHS across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight is geared up to offer whatever support people may need – including on Bank Holiday Monday, on 25 May. If anyone needs urgent help or advice regarding an injury, an physical illness, or concerns over their emotional and mental health, skilled staff are available to help. Find out more about the support available over the Bank Holiday.
Mental Health Awareness Week (18-22 May), is being used to celebrate acts of kindness across the city that are so important to our mental health. Research shows that being kind to ourselves and others can help improve our emotional wellbeing. It is a vital way in which we can support those who are in mental health need, including those feeling anxious, lonely or with low mood. Find out how kindness brings us together with benefits for everyone and the local services available.
Please note due to the current status of COVID-19, our next Governing Body meeting on 20 May will take place virtually and will be uploaded to our website to view after the meeting. The Oakley Road offices are currently closed.
Agenda and papers for the meeting are now available and we would welcome any questions from members of the public. If you have any questions you would like to ask the Governing Body about the meeting agenda or around what the CCG is doing around COVID-19, please contact us via email.
While we are all staying at home it can be difficult to know what to do if you need medical help or advice, but local doctors want to remind you that there are a range of services and support available. Find out what support is available over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
During the Covid-19 pandemic all routine NHS and private dentistry has stopped.
The NHS is continuing to provide urgent and emergency dental care. This will be available to both NHS and private patients. If you have a dental emergency please call your dental practice during their normal opening hours for further advice. If you do not have a regular dentist, you can search for a local dentist on the NHS website at www.nhs.uk and call them. If you have a dental emergency outside of normal surgery opening hours you can call 111 for advice and information on your local out-of-hours emergency dental service. Find out more about the support available.
