A series of health and wellbeing education events is scheduled to take place in Haverhill – with the aim of giving people the information and confidence they need to best support and deal with their own health conditions.
This series of sessions has been organised by the town‘s two GP practices, the Haverhill Family Practice and Christmas Maltings & Clements, along with NHS West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group and working with partners including Abbeycroft Leisure, Allied Health Professionals Suffolk, One Life Suffolk, Suffolk County Council and Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.
Over the next six months the programme of education sessions includes diabetes awareness, young people’s mental wellbeing, baby worries and the role of a health visitor and preventative health care advice from Haverhill Family Practice’s Dr Firas Watfeh
Dr David Brandon, clinical lead GP at Christmas Maltings and Clements Practice, said: “Without question one of the best ways to look after our own health is to properly understand it, so a series of workshops is being arranged with the support of local experts and the CCG.
“This is a great opportunity for the people of Haverhill to learn more about their health and how to manage frequently occurring conditions.”
