EBOLA and other Viral Haemorrhagic Fever infections

Public Health has requested that we ask anyone who has travelled in the last 21 days from an at risk area for Ebola/Viral Haemorrhagic Fever infections to telephone first for any appointment so their risk can be assessed, if they wish to see a doctor or visit the Medical Centre. Even if you have travelled to the Medical Centre you should still return home and then telephone, if you have travelled in the last 21 days from an at risk area for Ebola/Viral Haemorrhagic Fever infections.

Bowel Screening:- 

 

The NHS will send out to everyone between the ages of 50 and 74 a bowel screening test kit by post every two years. Please take up the test. It is quick, if smelly and it could be a lifesaver.

 

Bowel cancer is the third commonest cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. Every year over 3000 people in Scotland are diagnosed with it. The good news is bowel screening reduces bowel cancer deaths so please take up the test.

 

To find out more either call the Helpline on 0800 0121 833 or visit the website www.bowelscreening.scot.nhs.uk

 

Men Only :-

 

One of the first signs that your arteries are hardening could be that other parts of you stop hardening first!

Research now shows that erectile dysfunction, especially in men under 65, could predict that there are early changes in mens arteries which in a few years time could cause symptoms of cardiovascular disease. (At least doubling the risk of cardiovascular disease compared to a man without erectile dysfunction).

 

One third of men in our practice are between the ages 45 and 64.  Most are fit and healthy and rarely go to see their GP until they have a health problem.  One of the biggest health risks we all face is cardiovascular disease which causes sudden death, heart attacks, angina and strokes.  Unfortunately it is difficult to predict who will get it.  High blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, abdominal obesity, excess alcohol, lack of exercise and a family history of cardiovascular disease all put you at increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

 

So if your willie doesn't work see your GP as you are better to have a health check up now, to try to prevent serious problems developing in the next few years.
