World Sepsis Day

Logo

South West Lincolnshire CCG is supporting World Sepsis Day, Thursday 13 September 2018, to raise awareness of the condition and the signs to look out for.

Sepsis is a condition caused by your body’s immune system responding abnormally to an infection, which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, and death. The infection can start anywhere in your body; it may be only in one part, or it may be widespread.

Migraine Awareness Week

headache 1557865 1280

Migraines affect 8 million people in the UK and the World Health Organisation has rated it among the most disabling lifetime conditions. But it’s still very much a misunderstood condition, which at its worst can leave people incapacitated for 24 hours – with sufferers often reporting they have to lie down in a darkened room for two or three hours.

Bites and stings

 mosquito 542156 1280

Insect bites and stings are most common during the warmer summer months - they usually only cause minor irritation and clear up in a day.  In the UK you might be bitten by midges, mosquitoes, fleas, bedbugs, spiders, mites or ticks or stung by bees, wasps and hornets.

Residents interested in sharing their views on future plans for health and care services in Lincolnshire are encouraged to attend one of nine events taking place across the county throughout July.

The events will be an opportunity to discuss a range of topics with senior health and care leaders, that will feed into plans to transform and improve services to meet the needs of current residents and future generations.
