The annual nasal spray flu vaccine will be available for all children aged 2, 3 and 4 years old as part of the NHS childhood vaccination programme.  It will also be available for school children in Years 1 & 2 starting school in September 2015.


Dementia Awareness

If you're becoming increasingly forgetful, particularly if you're over the age of 65, it may be a good idea to talk to your GP about the early signs of dementia.

As you get older, you may find that memory loss becomes a problem. It's normal for your memory to be affected by age, stress, tiredness, or certain illnesses and medications. This can be annoying if it happens occasionally, but if it's affecting your daily life or is worrying you or someone you know, you should seek help from your GP.

Weight loss

The risks of being overweight are many, ranging from painful feet and knees to coronary heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer. The vast majority of people who are overweight would like to weigh less, but we know that instead of the incidence of overweight and obesity decreasing, it is in fact increasing.
