Byron Primary Care Network (PCN), which covers the four GP Practices in Hucknall, is hosting its first-ever Hucknall for Health event, focusing on residents’ health and wellbeing.
A PCN is a group of GP practices working together with other local organisations, such as community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services.
The event is being held from 1pm – 5pm on Saturday 25 February at Hucknall Leisure Centre, with representatives from local health and care organisations sharing information about their services and interactive sessions focused on wellbeing. On top of information from local services, attendees to the Hucknall for Health event, can also expect:
- Free healthy food pack to the value of £10 or a free blood pressure monitor!
- Cost of living advice and support
- Advice from local health and care professionals
- Health checks
- Mental health support
- Sports and activity opportunities
- Lots of things for the kids to take part in too!
Byron PCN has worked in partnership with Ashfield District Council, local NHS, South Notts Place-Based Partnership and local voluntary and community organisations to organise the event, with Hucknall GP and Byron PCN Clinical Director Dr Adam Connor saying: “Working across local services to support our residents is vital even at the best of times but with the cost-of-living crisis, and following on from the impact of COVID-19, it’s never been more important.
“As a Primary Care Network, we recognised, along with other key local organisations, that we had an opportunity to put on an event that is open to our whole community to help tackle some of the issues that impact on people’s wellbeing.
“I hope that many of Hucknall residents can find the time to join us to find out more about the local support that is available and that by coming along to this event, you can access the help and advice you need to improve your health and wellbeing.”
