Success for dementia fundraising event

Issued on behalf of Wickham Market Medical Centre

Local people are being thanked for supporting last week’s (June 14) National Dementia Cupcake Day event which was held at Wickham Market Medical Centre and its branch surgery at Rendlesham.

A total of £820.00 was raised for the Alzheimer’s Society from the sale of delicious cupcakes which were baked by members of the centre’s staff and Patient Participation Group, and raffle prizes which were donated by generous local businesses.

New diabetes guide for health professionals

Healthcare professionals in Suffolk are being urged to read a new guide that has been published to help them navigate the often complex world of diabetes care and treat patients living with the disease sensitively.

The launch of Language Matters coincides with Diabetes Week (11-17 June) and this year’s theme tackles the issue of difficult conversations – aiming to make it easier for people to have tricky or awkward discussions with medical professionals, friends or family.


A new Suffolk and North East Essex campaign ‘Learn to live well with diabetes’ has been launched in Diabetes Week (11 – 17 June) to advertise the benefits of attending free NHS courses which are run by diabetes specialist nurses and dietitians in each local area.

People living with diabetes in Suffolk and North East Essex are being urged to book themselves onto NHS courses which are essential to their diabetes care.

Making Woodbridge an even healthier and happier place

Being well and staying well – that’s the theme of a summer health event that aims to inform and support people in Woodbridge to live a healthier life.

The event will take place at Woodbridge Library on Tuesday June 19 from 2.00 – 5.00 p.m. and is being organised by the Patient Participation Group (PPG) of the town’s Little St John’s Street GP Surgery.

Community comes together for dementia fundraising

The Wickham Market Medical Centre will be hosting a sweet and tasty event on National Dementia Cupcake Day (June 14) to raise awareness of dementia and funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Staff and members of the centre’s Patient Participation Group will be baking a mouth-watering selection of cupcakes for sale on the day. Local businesses have generously donated a selection of raffle prizes, including prosecco, toiletries, cupcakes, plants and gift vouchers worth between £10 and £50.
