Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative that sets out to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts, and talks about the condition. Howden Medical Centre is proud to be a supporter of this campaign. We are committed to working with the Alzheimer’s Society to make improvements, where this is appropriate and possible, to our systems, cultures, diagnosis and care and our physical environment.
We will continue to make positive changes to improve our accessibility for patients with dementia and would be happy to hear from you if you have any suggestions. Please get in touch with the practice manager if there is anything we can do to make your visits to us easier.
If you care for someone with dementia it is important for you to have access to information and support as well. Please ensure the practice knows that you are a carer.

The UK Health Security Agency has confirmed that cases of monkeypox have increased recently but the risk to the UK population remains low.
Anyone can get monkeypox. Currently most cases have been in men who are gay, bisexual or have sex with men, so it's particularly important to be aware of the symptoms if you're in these groups.
Contact a sexual health clinic if you have a rash with blisters and either:
+ you've been in close contact, including sexual contact, with someone who has or might have monkeypox (even if they've not been tested yet) in the past 3 weeks
+ you've been to west or central Africa in the past 3 weeks
If you have an unexplained rash, please contact NHS111 or phone the practice to make an appointment.
Further public information is available - see below.
