Liverpool Healthy Lungs Programme is coming to the Practice: September 2018 – March 2019

We are working with NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group to offer lung health clinics to people at the Practice. 

This programme is known as the Liverpool Healthy Lung Programme.  You can find out more about it online here: http://www.liverpoolccg.nhs.uk/health-and-services/healthy-lungs/  Here you can also watch an inspiring video about Dennis, who recently attended a clinic.   

The clinics will be offered to people aged 58-75 who have ever smoked or who have COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).  If you are in this group you should receive a clinic invite letter around September/October, after which you should book an appointment as soon as possible. 

At your appointment you will see a specialist lung nurse who will ask about your general health and also some questions about your lungs and breathing. S/he may also check your breathing using Spirometry (a tube you blow in). With your permission s/he will also offer to assess your risk of lung cancer using a Lung Risk Score.  If you decide to have the Lung Risk Score, you may be offered a chest CT scan at a local hospital.

We now know that if we pick up lung problems including lung cancers at a very early stage we can treat them with the latest and most effective treatments.  Sometimes we can cure them.  Liverpool has led the way in trying to improve our citizens’ health and this programme is part of it.

This is a great opportunity to improve your lung health and we do hope to see you in the clinic.

For more information you can email: HealthyLung@liverpoolccg.nhs.uk

 

Travel Vaccinationsglobal air travel

If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements.  This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.

It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible  - at least 6 weeks before you travel - It is important to check that we stock the vaccination you require before making an appointment.  Most vaccinations are kept in stock, however there are some vaccinations that are not available to us and can only be administered by the Liverpool school of tropical medicine.  Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.

We do not charge for travel vaccinations, however if your vaccination is only available from Liverpool school of tropical medicine they will charge you for their service
