Dying Matters Awareness Week

Dying Matters Awareness Week aims to open up the conversation around dying, death and bereavement. This topic can be challenging and distressing to discuss, however, evidence shows talking about your wishes and priorities at the end of life ensures people receive care consistent with their values, goals and preferences. Advance Care planning is a conversation between people, their families, carers and healthcare professionals about their wishes and priorities of care at the end of life. In Leeds this can be documented on a Respect form which your GP, community nurse, palliative team, or hospital consultant can help you complete. For further information please see www.dyingmatters.org and www.resist.org.uk/respect/respect-patients-and-carers or arrange an appointment with a GP.

Ear Wax

Ear irrigation (syringing) will no longer be available at Collingham Church View Surgery. Ear syringing is not considered to be the first line treatment for clearing wax. Unfortunately, it is not a funded service within the NHS for General Practice and we do not have the resource to undertake this work. Therefore, in line with many other surgeries nationwide, we have made the difficult decision to withdraw ear syringing with effect from July 2020.
