Be prepared for the late May Bank Holiday

As the late May bank holiday approaches next Monday (May 29) leading local GPs are reminding people to be prepared, whatever the weather.

Dr Mo Huda, a Rugeley GP and Chair Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group CCG said: “An early visit to the local pharmacy to stock up with basic first aid items to help with minor ailments, such as stomach upsets, allergies, headaches, sunburn, insect bites, aches, sprains and strains should feature in everyone’s preparations.

Fond farewell to leading Cannock GP

Dr Stephen Gibbins, from the Moss Street Surgery in Chadsmoor, is hanging up his stethoscope to retire after 30 years’ service.

Dr Gibbins, started work as a GP in Chadsmoor in 1987 and then set up Moss Street Surgery in purpose-built premises in 1990. By 1995 Moss Street was a three-doctor practice and under Dr Gibbins' guidance the list size has risen from 2000 to 5000 registered patients. 

Nurses gather to improve dementia services in Staffordshire communities

Around 80 community based nurses are coming together next month for a special event to discuss better ways to diagnose and support people with dementia and their families.

The event is being jointly organised by two of Staffordshire’s NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) who together serve over 275,000 patients (see Notes to Editors), with South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (SSSFT), the University of Worcester’s Association for Dementia Studies and The Alzheimer’s Society.

The nurses all work in community settings, either within GP practices or as district nurses.
