Know your health service options

With the NHS experiencing high levels of demand for services and a spell of cold weather forecast over the next few days, health bosses across Worcestershire are encouraging people to know their health services options.

Patients can contact their own GP during surgery hours, visit their local pharmacist, dial 111 for medical advice and information and there are five Minor Injury Units across the county in Malvern, Evesham, Kidderminster, Tenbury and Bromsgrove.

At this time of year, cold weather and cold homes can have a significant impact on people's health, so keeping warm over the winter months can help prevent some illnesses particularly amongst the elderly and those with respiratory conditions. Click here for more

The birth of a baby is often said to be the happiest time of your life. For some new mums, however, the reality is quite different. For those with mental health disorders such as Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Antenatal and Postnatal Depression, this can be the most worrying time of all. In Worcestershire, the Perinatal Psychiatry team work with women from conception to one year postnatal, this is referred to as the ‘perinatal period’. 

This Countywide, community-based service, provided by Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, works closely with GPs, Midwives and Health Visitors to identify women who may be at risk of developing or who are already living with a mental illness. The Perinatal team have antenatal mental health clinics for pregnant women who are at risk of developing a mental health problem either during pregnancy or after birth.

Worcestershire’s Minor Injury Units (MIUs) remain the place to go if you have cuts, wounds, sprains, strains and minor burns. All the county’s five MIUs (Kidderminster, Malvern, Evesham, Bromsgrove and Tenbury) are open as normal and are staffed with skilled and experienced staff who can treat a range of minor injuries.

Michelle Clarke, Director of Nursing and Quality at Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, said: “The message is clear that the MIUs are open and remain the place to go for your minor injuries. Our MIUs are staffed with excellent nurses who are trained to treat a range of minor injuries and on average the waiting times in each site is often less than 30minutes.” Click Here for More
