Carers Rights Day 2016 - Friday 25th November
This year's theme is Missing out? Know your rights as a carer
Each year, CarersUK hold Carers Rights Day to bring organisations across the UK together to help carers in their local community know their rights and find out how to get the help and support they are entitled to.
If you are caring for someone at the moment and would like to find out more about your rights and how to get help, click here. Alternatively, phone Reception on 01367-252264 and ask for an appointment with our social prescriber, Lisa Hepworth, this Friday 25th November between 1pm and 5pm
A private company called Pharmacy 2U has been sending letters to patients, inviting them to register with their service for home delivery of drugs. Please be aware that Pharmacy 2U is not part of the NHS and is not connected in anyway with Lechlade Medical Centre. Patients are free to decide which service they use to obtain their medication, whether it be Pharmacy 2U, Lechlade Pharmacy or elsewhere.

The Friends & Family Test
The Friends & Family Test was introduced for GP Surgeries by the Department of Health on 1/12/2014.
This is a very short questionnaire which we would like you to complete each time you use our service.
The results will be published monthly on the NHS Choices and the NHS England websites.
