Heat Health Watch Service

Heatwaves can be dangerous, especially for the very young, the elderly or those with a chronic disease. Prolonged exposure to very high temperatures can mean the body is unable to reduce its own temperature, causing dehydration and heatstroke, which can be fatal. In particular, hot temperatures overnight make it difficult for the body to cool.

The Heat Health Watch Service operates in England from 1 June to 15 September each year, in association with Public Health England.

The Met Office forecasts day-time and night-time maximum temperatures, which are monitored regionally. When certain heat thresholds are passed, a warning is issued and sent to relevant NHS, social care, local and national government professionals, well as being displayed on our website. This enables organisations, frontline staff and individuals to take action to minimise the impact of the heat on peoples' health.

The practice is currently offering a new audiology service from the Padiham and Nelson sites - ask at reception for further information. Over 55 year old can ask to be referred into the service for Free NHS hearing aids.

East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group

Over the last 18 months East Lancashire CCG has been working alongside patients, carers and wider stakeholders like doctors and pharmacists to develop a vision for how they would like GP services to develop in future. Our vision is for GPs and partner organisations to work together more closely; to provide quality joined up care; with equal access to services wherever you live in East Lancashire. Together we came up with a simplified system to provide appointments in the practice, on the phone, online and in patients’ homes as required. Further information in document below.
