  • YouScreen HPV Self-Sampling Research

    Albion Health Centre is taking part in the YouScreen HPV Self-Sampling Research Study run by King’s College London.

    As part of the study, women aged 25-64 years who are at least 6 months overdue their cervical screening (previously known as a “smear test”) may receive a letter and a self-sample kit in the post, or be offered a kit during their appointment. 

    If you meet the criteria above, this study will collect de-personalised data about you from NHS England and your GP records, even if you do not take part. We will not link your name or identifiable details to this information. The information collected will include your age, ethnicity, general area location, and details about your previous and future cervical screening and link it to data from the national screening database.

    If you have any questions about this study or if you do not want this non-identifiable information data to be shared, please speak to a member of the GP practice reception staff.

    Further information about the research can be found at https://www.smallc.org.uk/YouScreen

     

  • Out of hours services this bank holiday Monday (25 May)

    We will be closed this bank holiday Monday (25 May).

    However, you can still see a GP through the Tower Hamlets GP extended access service, get advice from NHS 111 or visit a pharmacist.

    GPs are assuring residents across Tower Hamlets that the local NHS is ‘open for business’ and ready to safely provide care to people who need it. It is important you do not wait if you need urgent medical help.

    We know that some people are worried that they might be a burden to the NHS, or that they could contract COVID-19 if they seek help for an urgent medical issue at the moment, but services are very safe for patients to access.

    If you have an urgent medical need, first visit NHS 111 online for advice. If you cannot access the internet, call 111.

    GP appointments are available from 8am to 8pm this bank holiday Monday through the Tower Hamlets GP extended access service. To access these appointments call 111 and an appointment will be offered if appropriate.

    Community pharmacies will also be available this bank holiday weekend. Before visiting your local pharmacy, first check the opening hours on the NHS.UK website. When you visit you must comply with the social distancing measures in place to protect yourself and staff.

    If it is a serious or life-threatening emergency, such as if you or a family member have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, call 999 immediately. If you are told to go to hospital, it is important that you go.

    In addition, if you are pregnant and are worried about your health or the health of your unborn baby, please contact your midwife or maternity team.

    If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature), you must stay at home for at least seven days. Anyone you live with should not leave home for 14 days. You can use the NHS 111 COVID-19 online service to check your symptoms and get more advice. Do not go to a GP practice, pharmacy or hospital if you have these symptoms - this is to help limit the spread of the virus.

     

  • Ramadan

    Please enjoy Ramadan but follow the guidance on social distancing. If you have a medical condition such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease or lung disease, or you are on medication, or pregnant, or elderly, or in the highest risk group that are asked to stay at home for 12 weeks, please choose alternative options to fasting, in order to protect yourself from Covid-19. The NHS Muslim Network and the British Islamic Medical Association are advising that missed fasts can be made up at a later date in the year.
