Diabetes Prevention Week (1-7th April 2019)
Its Diabetes Prevention week this week. Click here to find out more about how you can reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Listen to Stockport resident Nikki talking about how taking part in the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme has changed her life, giving her a second chance and a healthy future.
Thank you to all our patients who took the time to complete our recent patient consultation. A number of key themes emerged from your feedback. These themes and our responses to them can be seen here.
Archwood leading the way in Pain Management
Dr Parker and Caroline Austin (our Practice Pharmacist) together with 12 Archwood patients are involved in a ground breaking project to try to reduce the use of morphine-like medication among patients living with pain. The project has won national funding to work with Stockport's Pain Service on this and we hope it will be an important step towards improving pain management for many of our patients.
