Bereavement Awareness (Source: NHS.uk)

What are the symptoms of bereavement & Grief?

  • Shock and numbness – this is usually the first reaction to loss, and people often talk about "being in a daze"
  • Overwhelming sadness, with lots of crying
  • Tiredness or exhaustion
  • Anger – towards the person you've lost or the reason for your loss
  • Guilt – for example, guilt about feeling angry, about something you said or did not say, or not being able to stop your loved one dying

Further Help

  • Diabetes Awareness

  • Visit a very valuable online learning platform hosted by diabetes UK where you can find out answers to questions you have about diabetes. You can find this at: https://learningzone.diabetes.org.uk/ The modules here range from carbohydrate counting to emotional eating and are really practical.
  • Invest in a home blood pressure monitor. This is so that you can advise us of your home blood pressure readings and helps us to offer you prompt appropriate treatment to prevent health problems of uncontrolled blood pressure on kidneys, heart and eyes. The British and Irish Hypertension Society research BP machines and recommend on their website: https://bihsoc.org/bp-monitors/for-home-use/
  • Are you a Patient with Diabetes at GPSH?
    It is likely that as half this year has already passed we will only manage to see our patients with diabetes once in the year, so we would be grateful if you can bring in urine samples when you see the health care worker for your foot check and blood test. To give our patients with diabetes a better experience of reviews we launched diabetes group consultations before the Covid-19 lockdown and we are hoping shortly to transfer this idea into video group consultations. We hope you will support this venture as it will give people with diabetes more opportunity to explore their health in depth.

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

At GPS Healthcare we are fortunate to have a very active and engaged Patient Participation Groups across all 6 of our sites. The groups meet a few times a year to discuss the services provided, current developments within the practice and the local health community. We try to ensure that the group is representative of the practice population and would encourage people of all ages and ethnicities to join the group. We welcome feedback from all patients irrespective of whether they join the PPG. If you would like to be involved, please contact the reception team at your local practice or alternatively view the PPG information board at your local practice.
