**CAMBOIS SURGERY UPDATE**

Our Branch Surgery located in Cambois is currently up for sale.  An auction will take place on Wednesday 24th July 2019.

We will continue to provide medical services to the residents of Cambois.  We are uncertain if our location will remain in Cambois or if services will be provided from Bedlington.

We would like to reassure our patients that we will keep them informed during this process and hope for a quick resolution

Please contact the surgery on 01670829889 or 01670823917 if you have any concerns

Home Medicine Chest

Remember that you can treat many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and indigestion by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home. We suggest you keep the following:

  • Paracetamol and aspirin (children under 16 and people with asthma should not take aspirin)
  • Sunburn treatment (for example, calamine)
  • Mild laxatives
  • Anti-diarrhoeal medicines
  • Rehydration mixture
  • Indigestion remedy (for example, antacids)
  • Travel sickness tablets
  • Tweezers and sharp scissors
  • Sunscreen – SPF15 or higher
  • A thermometer
  • Plasters, non-absorbent cotton wool, elastic bandages and dressings.

Remember:

  • Keep the medicine chest in a secure, locked place, out of reach of small children.
  • Always read the instructions and use the suggested dose
  • Watch expiry dates – don’t keep or use medicines past their sell-by date
  • Take all unwanted and out-of-date medicines back to the pharmacy

We also can provide further information on self-care – please take the relevant information from our waiting room.
