RACE TO THE PYRAMIDS

We have extremely big hearted GPs, though a little wacky!!!  Three of them have very kindly decided to raise money for Eastwood Memory Cafe with a totally amazing challenge.  I would be really grateful if you could share this with anyone and everyone you know, so we can hopefully reach the target set. 

 

Please see the following link:

 

https://mydonate.bt.com/events/racetothepyramids/461236

 

In order to support the amazing work of Eastwood Memory Cafe; we have set ourselves the challenge of collectively running the equivalent distance of Eastwood to The Pyramids of Giza, 2200 miles, by the end of 2018 and would love to raise the same number in £s - £2200!!!

Please support this fabulous charity which makes such a difference to those affected by dementia in our local area.

Feel free to keep nagging us to get those running miles in. We will give monthly updates with progress toward our target!

Dr Atkinson, Dr Scullard and Dr Homer

Patient Online Access – Keeping Your Online Records Secure Having access to your records online is a great way to get involved in looking after your health.  Your records contain personal information, so it’s important to keep them safe.  You should take the same care with your health and social care records as you do if you use online banking.   Here are some tips on how to keep your records safe:

  • If your record provider created a password for you as part of your log-in details, you should change it as soon as possible.
  • Use a strong and memorable password that is at least 8 characters long.
  • Do not write your password down or share it.
  • Do not use words in your password which may be easy for others to guess, such as the names of your relatives or pets.
  • Always log out of your records when you have finished using them.
  • It is best to view your records when you are somewhere private, and on your own computer or mobile device.
  • If you print information from your records make sure it is stored securely.

  Further information and advice about keeping your online health and social care record safe and secure is available here.
