Self Care Week (14 – 20 November)
14 – 20 November is Self Care Week and is a chance for the public to learn more about how they can best take control of their own health, whether that is by taking care of minor conditions at home or choosing the right place to go for help and advice. Read more HERE.
The national theme this year is ‘Understanding Self Care for Life’. A media release will be issued quoting Dr Christopher Browning/Dr Mark Shenton and will highlight key messages that the local pharmacist is the health professional on the high street for advice and guidance, as well reminding ‘at risk’ groups to get a flu jab. The release also includes a link to signpost people to the NHS Choices site where advice can be sought on long term conditions. The release will also be published on both CCG websites, and social media platforms will also be promoting Self Care Week.
A series of Self Care factsheets are also available to the public. These are for common ailments to help clinicians and patients discuss issues around self-care within the practice consultation and especially how to handle the symptoms.

22 July 2016 - LATEST UPDATE
The Practice and Botesdale Surgery are continuing discussions to share a delivery van service for medicines so that Hopton patients do not have to travel to Stanton. The two surgeries are due to meet over the next month and hope to finalise details. Our aim is to then be in a position to announce the exact details of the service.
Both surgeries are excited by this joint venture which is aimed at primarily benefiting our respective patients who are unable to leave their homes. There will also be a nominated collection point on a predetermined day in Hopton to allow collections of prescriptions. We very much look forward to announcing when this service will be live and appreciate your patience whilst we mobilise this provision.

Named GP for all patients
As part of a national programme, from April 2015 all practices are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.
At the Hopton and Stanton surgeries, patients have been registered to a named GP and they will be the GP with this responsibility. If you do not know who your registered GP is, please feel free to contact the surgery and a receptionist will be happy to inform you.
You may continue to request to see any GP for your appointments.
