Lucas Avenue Practice hosted a successful Health & Wellness Open Day for all members of the public on Monday 24 July 2017. See pictures from the event below.
The event was well attended, mixed with members of the general public, registered patients, local healthcare providers and surgery staff, as well as a local Healthwatch representative and local Councillor Aleen Alarice.
Attendees had the opportunity to meet with
the Practice Manager together with new and long standing staff members of the practice. The event helped to raise awareness about a number of local healthcare service providers, all of which are accessible through the surgery for patients and residents of Newham. Patients also had access to refreshments, free mini health-checks and face painting.
Patients were also notified of the Patient Participation Group at the practice- a practice/patient partnership group designed to help ensure that the practice meets the needs of all of its patients.
The event also provided a great platform for local healthcare services to engage with one another, promoting a holistic and community based approach to healthcare.
The local services that attended included Royal Society for the Blind Children (RSBC), a charity on a mission to make sure every single blind child has the self-belief and skills to fulfill their potential, Newham Carers Network, an organisation designed to provide support for carers in the community, Maternity Mates, as well as:
- Resources for Autism
- Newham Talking Therapies (CFCS)
- Newham Child and Family Consultation Service
- Community Health Newham Directorate
- CYANA – Cancer, You Are Not Alone
- Early Start Community Nutrition Team
- Healthwatch Newham
AT Medics were delighted to host this event, and extend special thanks to the practice team and services who made this all possible.
