Noticeboard

Car Parking Fines: The privately owned dental surgery upstairs have installed cameras on their side of the car park. This is clearly marked as "Dental patients’ car park” above their entrance. To avoid a fine please park on the right side or consider using other local parking facilities.

 

If you park in the dentist car park

they will send you  a fine of £100

 

This is being monitored by an external company who initiate the fines, on behalf of the dentists.

  

Hearing Loop

The surgery has a portable hearing loop for patients hard of hearing with a hearing aid to use. If you would like to use this when you attend the surgery, either in reception or while seeing the Doctor or nurse, please let reception know. You will need to switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position.

Atrial Fibrillation (AF)

In people over the age of 65 an irregular pulse can contribute to causing a stroke. We are now starting to screen people for this. If you're over 65 and no-one has checked your pulse then please ask your doctor or nurse to do this next time you see them.

People found to have certain kinds of irregularity will be offered an ECG and possibly medication to help prevent a stroke.

Parkrun

Western Road Medical Centre encourages our patients to stay as active as possible no matter what your age or ability, which is why we recommend Parkrun. Between us our staff have clocked up over 250 runs.

Parkrun organises a free, weekly, 5km, timed walk or run in a park near you at 9am every Saturday. 

Locally this is Raphael's park and Harrow Lodge park and we encourage people of every ability to take part: four olds to club runners to octogenarians - all are welcome.

 Click for more details and a list of participating parks

If the thought of walking or running 5 kilometers seems daunting there are plenty of resources to help you get started. The NHS's Couch to 5k app for your phone takes someone who can't run through a 9-week programme to get them running or jogging 5 kilometers.
