Opening Hours Mon-
Patient information Centre
The Patients Information Centre (PIC) was founded in 2001. It is staffed and run by volunteers and has an input from both medical and other health professionals. The aim of the PIC is to provide you with information from their comprehensive library and computer database about a wide range of medical conditions and treatments.
“Our philosophy has always been to work closely with the medical and health professionals in the Medical Centre in providing complimentary information enabling you and your family to learn more about your illness and hopefully benefit from this knowledge” Sally Chesson, PIC coordinator
They do not only concentrate on ill health, but feel it’s important to promote all aspects of good health too.
They also provide information on the role and support of carers and how to make initial contact with many support groups.
There is a budding bookshelf regarding children’s health, this information may be in the form of leaflets, booklets, DVD's and CD’s.
AGE UK LIFE BOOKS
These books are designed for you to record all your important information in one place. e.g. where your important documents, names of your insurance company and details of important appointments are kept. These could be very useful for your family in an emergency.
PIC has a supply of application forms for the LifeBook.
Please come and pick one up.
