Linden and Tawa Surgeries CVRA Breakfast

Mar 19 2019

On Saturday March 2nd we held our first CVRA breakfast at the Tawa Community Centre.

 Invitations went out to our Maori and Pacific Island patients aged 30-40 who had not had their Cardiovascular Risk Assessment.     26 patients of our attended the breakfast.

Staff from Linden Surgery and Tawa Medical Centre together with Te Huri, Anne-Maree and Sarah from Compass Health (our PHO) provided them with a health assessment.   Dr John Langham gave a talk on heart disease and the implications that it can have on a person’s health journey.  The team pitched in to provide everyone who attended with a delicious healthy breakfast.   Cliff who has had an unexpected cardiac medical event, spoke on his health journey, sharing his first-hand experience, a valuable insight for patients and staff.

We were delighted at the enthusiasm of the participants which made this event a great success.

MEASLES UPDATE

Mar 15 2019

At present we have no known cases of Measles in the Wellington region.

 The supplier is giving priority to the parts of the country where there are known cases.

 When we receive vaccines priority will be given to those who have never had an MMR dose, starting with children aged 12 months to 5 years

The second priority will be those aged 6 to 12 years old who have no documented second dose and then 13-28 year olds, who have no documented second dose.

 Regional Public Health advise:

·        if you are over 50 years old you are considered to be immune as measles was prevalent prior to 1969.

·        if you are aged 28 to 49 years old, and have had one dose of MMR, you are considered to be 95% protected.

 We understand that you may be concerned and want to check your immunisation status. We are experiencing a high number of these calls,                                                                                      in addition to our daily phone calls and will return your call re MMR status within 3 business days.
