Upper Dales Health Watch / Health Issues
At a recent meeting of the Upper Dales Health Watch,
There will be 2 types of ‘flu vaccine this year. During September patients aged 64 and under will be invited in to receive one type, and in October patients aged 65 and over will be asked in to receive a different type. Patients using this service at one of the two surgeries will help the financial viability of the Central Dales Practice.
From 1st October Miss Fiona Morrison will be joining the Central Dales Practice as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. She will work 3 days a week at Aysgarth and 1 day at Hawes. She is currently working at the Harewood Practice, so knows Richmondshire. Fiona will be on the GP rota and will be able to do most things a GP can do. This will mean there will be a balance of male & female practitioners at both surgeries. She is a child safeguarding specialist and has worked for the Army.

Ambulance Service Community First Responders - REMINDER
The First Responders are still looking to recruit additional volunteers to the team. This does not require a great deal of time and can easily be arranged around your work/family/social commitments. However, there is a requirement to complete a local training programme in order to qualify. Responders currently cover weekday nights and all day at weekends and bank holidays. Even a small commitment would be helpful to them. If you are interested in joining or simply wish to know more about the service they provide, please contact David Brampton on 663561.
DOG WASTE BINS IN CARPERBY
One of the issues to emerge from the recent Parish Plan Event in January was the continuing problem of dog waste in the village. The main problem seems to stem from visitors and it was felt that the location of the dog waste bins could be better advertised. IF YOU OWN A HOLIDAY LET IN THE VILLAGE OR USE YOUR SECOND HOME FOR FRIENDS AND VISITORS, PLEASE PRINT & DISPLAY THE ATTACHED MAP. More copies of the map are available from Councillor Sheldon at The Quarter House.
