Reminder: CCG Members' meeting 19 June
The CCG member practices' meeting is on 19 June. Please remember to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you or a representative from your practice will be attending. Thank you.
Reminder: Significant Event Analysis (SEA)
As part of shared learning, we are studying the experiences of GPs where cancer was diagnosed following an emergency presentation. We would like to request the support of your Practice through completing a Significant Event Analysis (SEA).
Please see the attached letter and questionnaire for more information.
We would very much appreciate your support and participation in completion of this audit as the more engagement from practices we receive, the more value is added to the learning event which will be held later in the year.
Cervical Cancer Awareness Week: 11 to 18 June 2018
Cervical cancer can be prevented. With your help we can ensure every woman knows how they can reduce their risk of the disease and there are steps they can take to look after their health. Please feel free to use the information on this page on your public websites or for social media messaging to help encourage patients take up the cervical screening offer.
Diabetes Week 2018: 11 to 17 June 2018
11-17 June is diabetes week. This is a good opportunity to talk to your patients who have diabetes and remind them of the free NHS courses on offer which will help them manage their condition. Following £1.5m Government investment last year there are now more Desmond, PDAC, and DAFNE courses available. Desmond is now also available to anyone with Type 2 diabetes who hasn’t attended before so please encourage your patients to attend.

Copies of a Cancer Research UK (CRUK) leaflet 'Your urgent referral explained' which is designed to help with discussions with patients being referred on a TWW pathway are on their way to practices. If you would like further copies of this leaflet they can be ordered 'free of charge' from:
