2010 Stroke Awareness Event
Saturday April 24th saw the PPG’s (Patient Participation Groups) first educational event. The practice opened its door on a beautiful sunny morning to the slogan ‘small change big difference’
The outside marquee had stalls that aimed to help patients make that difference by finding out about a healthy lifestyle and avoid having a stroke. Inside GP’s were on hand to measure patient’s blood pressure and give general stroke avoidance advice. Members of the community neurology team were also on hand. Outside the patients were treated to a display of belly dancing.
A successful day and hopefully one that will help patients make that small change to make a big difference.
