Important Update - Rowans Living Well Services (LWS)

Antibiotic resistance

Take Care, Not Antibiotics.

Antibiotics are no longer routinely used to treat infections.

This is because:

  • many infections are caused by viruses, so antibiotics are not effective
  • antibiotics are often unlikely to speed up the healing process and can cause side effects
  • the more antibiotics are used to treat trivial conditions, the more likely they are to become ineffective for treating more serious conditions

Both the NHS and health organisations across the world are trying to reduce the use of antibiotics, especially for health problems that are not serious.

The Denmead Voluntary Care Group

The Denmead Voluntary Care Group 

The DVCG exists to help and support the patients of the Denmead Health Centre, including those from Hambledon and the surrounding area. 

It is appreciated that being in the countryside, public transport links to the area’s hospitals and treatment centres are extremely limited. 

The Health Centre Reception can provide you with a telephone number to contact one of our coordinators to assist with your transport needs. 

A volunteer driver can collect you from your home and take you to your appointment, assist you in getting you to the right department, wait for you, and to take you home on completion. 

All we ask for is a contribution towards costs. 

We also have a minibus which does various trips to village functions, shopping centres and day trip outings. 

While sadly it is not equipped to accommodate wheelchair users, if you can climb the steps into the minibus it will open up many opportunities to getting out and about in our area. 

See the Practice Noticeboard for details.
