Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust is committed to empowering all older adults in Gloucestershire to reduce their risk of falls, which are one of the greatest causes of serious injuries and death among people over age 65. On September 18-22, GHC is partnering with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) to mark Falls Prevention Awareness Week.
This week (19-24) June is Cervical Screening Awareness Week – a campaign launched in 2021 to encourage those eligible for screening to respond to their cervical screening invitation letters and book an appointment at their GP practice or sexual health clinic if they missed their last one.
Heart Failure Awareness Week, held every year in May, is an opportunity for us to shine a light on heart failure and to raise awareness about our fantastic Heart Failure Service at GHC. Led by the British Society for Heart Failure (BSH), the campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of recognising heart failure symptoms early, getting an accurate diagnosis and receiving optimal treatment.
