Alconbury & Brampton Surgeries Newsletter Feb. 2018

Alconbury Pharmacy: We still await formal notification of when the new Pharmacy will open in the village but anticipate that this will happen before the license expires on 1st March 2018. Once the pharmacy is open we will have 3 months to gradually transfer the services of patient’s resident within a mile of the Pharmacy to their chosen Pharmacy Service. Apologies that we have not issued any further information to date but we are awaiting guidance from NHSE regarding this process. We would like to reassure you that we will do our utmost to ensure a smooth transition of services for our patients.

Brampton Reconfiguration.
We are in the process of converting an admin office into a consulting room to enable us to accommodate an additional GP at Brampton Surgery. Please bear with us as we make the modifications necessary to increase capacity at Brampton to meet patient demand.
Team Changes; At the beginning of February we were joined by GP trainee Dr Singh who will be with the Practice for at least 12 months. February and March are also busy months with us hosting medical students from

Cambridge University.
Albram: We would like to thank Albram for their ongoing efforts to coordinate the volunteer drivers scheme. This is a service provided to patients for minimal cost which can be accessed by all to attend appointments either at the surgery or elsewhere in the local Health Community. Albram are always keen to recruit additional drivers to support the scheme so if you have a few hours to spare on a regular basis then perhaps this could be an ideal way to give back to the community.

New Waterways Volunteering Opportunity

The Environment Agency is looking for people who live close to Houghton or St. Ives to volunteer at lock sides and attend waterways festivals. No prior knowledge of boating is required, just an interest in rivers and boating. Volunteers will be trained by the Environment Agency and will be given a uniform and ID badge. The scheme is managed by Cambridgeshire ACRE on behalf of the Environment Agency.
I would be grateful if you could make your residents aware of this opportunity by letting your Parish/Town Council know about it.

Rachael Brown
Community Development Manager

Rachael is also happy to take any general inquiries about the scheme, what the role involves and how to apply. In addition there is an Anglian Waterways Volunteer scheme website which gives more details about the scheme and how to apply, follow the web link for this.

A Practical Guide To Open Fires And Wood Burning Stoves.

As you will probably be aware the use of open fires and wood-burning stoves has risen in popularity over recent years, however these can lead to an increase in air pollution. This could be reduced in many cases if people used good quality fuel and burnt it efficiently.
The leaflet is now published follow the web link below.

We would also like to draw your attention to a further information guide entitled “We all breathe the same air” which is available for consumers. This has been produced by chimney sweeps and provides clear advice on the procedures to follow when lighting a stove to minimise smoke emissions. This can be found at the following web link:

Reporting Non-emergencies To Police [OFFICIAL]

You may have noticed that towards the end of last year we re-launched our website. As part of the development work we have included an online reporting section and live webchat to enable people to contact us about non-emergencies.

In the digital age people are doing more and more online. The website functionality enables people to contact us in this way, if they would prefer to do so than call 101.

A recent survey of more than 2,000 e-Cops subscribers showed that 65% of people didn’t know they could report non-emergencies online and nearly 90% were unaware of the live webchat option. However, 78% said that they would consider reporting in this way having been made aware of it.

With the above statistics in mind, we would like to ask you to consider helping us to promote online reporting to make more residents aware of this option. I have attached a suggested article for consideration for any local newsletters you produce or websites you look after. I would be incredibly grateful of you could help us in this way.

In the meantime, if you would like to look at the online reporting functionality please visit by following the web link below. The live webchat function is available by clicking on the green icon on the bottom right of the page.
