NHS Health Check Roadshows It was great to see many of you coming along to the roadshows to find out more about your FREE NHS health check. Now underway, many patients who we spoke to thought this was a great initiative aimed at helping people lower their risk of four common, but often preventable diseases: heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. It is for adults aged between 40-74 who have not already been diagnosed with any of these four conditions. Patients of School Lane Surgery and Grove Surgery, in conjunction with Thetford Healthy Town, are invited to attend these checks at the Healthy Living Centre. The check consists of a cholesterol check, BMI calculation, blood pressure check and also looks at your family history. If appropriate, patients will be offered personalised advice by an NHS Health Trainer to support them in lowering their risk and offering support to those who wish to make changes to their lifestyle. Jane Penfold and Carmen Gimenez are 2 health care assistants who attended one of the many road shows with support from the Thetford Health Trainers. After speaking with local resident Jose Moreira at the Portuguese Katekero cafe- in town, Carmen said “I enjoy this role as I get to work and deal with many people and being able to speak 5 languages helps”. Jane said “this is an ideal initiative for everyone and a role I thoroughly enjoy”.

Report highlights how migrant workers find health care A report called "Workers on the Move 3", published in Thetford, gave praise from migrant workers for health care services in South Norfolk with lessons to learn too. Commissioned by Thetford Healthy Town and written by Keystone Development Trust, it found: • UK health services were generally viewed in a positive light • Many praised the service provided by GPs in Norfolk • Most migrant workers thought the NHS had significantly shorter waiting times compared to healthcare service in their home countries • Several migrant workers talked very positively about the quality of maternity and ante-natal are provided in the region. Moreover the report found no evidence of so called “health tourism” whereby new migrants make disproportionate use of NHS services. In fact the report concludes that most migrants make little or no use of NHS services, and certainly no more than longer established communities. The report did highlight some areas of concern: • A desire for longer appointments with GPs • Differences in the use of antibiotics from the migrants home countries. Neil Stott, the Chief Executive of Keystone Development Trust said: "Our research looked at the health needs, issues and concerns of migrant workers by using questionnaires and focus groups. Norfolk has a relatively

large population of migrant workers. Understanding their health needs is important to help plan services and ensure those needs of migrant workers can be addressed." The report points out that "major concerns" have been raised in the past about the potentially negative impact of increased migration to the UK on the NHS. It says most migrant workers were registered with a GP, but fewer accessed dental services. It also highlights some areas for development, such as the need to better understand mental health needs, housing, homelessness and the links to ill-health and lifestyle issues such as tobacco and alcohol consumption. In the foreword to the report, The Chair of NHS Norfolk, Sheila Childerhouse, said: “NHS Norfolk is attempting to better understand the needs and issues of our many communities, including European migrants, to ensure our services continue to be relevant, responsive and of the highest quality. The report draws a number of valuable conclusions which we can use to develop and improve the services we provide not only to migrant communities, but also to existing communities across Norfolk.” The full report together with a research briefing can be downloaded from the Keystone Development Trust web site: http://www.keystonetrust.org.uk

How can physical activity reduce your risk of other diseases? As well as helping to prevent cancer, your risk of developing many health conditions can be reduced by being physically active every day. Among the diseases you can take steps to avoid are: l heart disease l stroke l osteoporosis l Type 2 diabetes l obesity l cognitive decline and dementia l depression

Research has found that physical activity lowers the risk of developing these health conditions because it: l lowers blood pressure l raises levels of ‘good’ cholesterol and lowers levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol l helps control blood sugar l increases bone density l increases brain function l improves mood Who can benefit? Anyone at any age can benefit. It’s never too late in life (or too early!) to become more physically active. Research has shown that even if you are over 70 years old, you can still extend your life expectancy and quality of life by becoming more physically active. SO DON’T DELAY… MAKE A LIFESTYLE CHANGE TODAY!

Canons Walk Londis Store is BIG on healthy choices! You may have all seen the press articles and TV interviews which showed how your very own local convenience store is helping to encourage people to make healthier choices about the food they buy. We recently returned to the store and spoke with manager Linda Hargrove and asked how things have been going since the launch, Linda said “Since the launch in November, the fruits in the shop are flying off the shelves! As most fruit are in value packs, this seems most popular with our locals and is great value for money. The fruit is located in the Change4Life bright yellow stand and is at the front of the store for everyone to see. It was great to hear a young child asking their parents for an apple or banana to eat once they had seen them”.

2011 Census: META Health helps tomorrow to take shape On 27 March 2011 all residential households in the United Kingdom will be taking part in a census. Since 1801 a day has been chosen every ten years for this purpose (except in 1941 during the war). The Census provides an excellent source of information about the population. It enables central and local government, healthcare organisations, education, academics, commercial business and professional organisations to understand the make-up of the population so that they can plan services that reflect the needs of local communities and the nation as a whole. The Census statistics also feed into the allocation of funding for local authorities, so it is crucial the population estimate is as accurate as possible. Through the META Health project, Keystone Development Trust recognises the need for local health services to have accurate information about numbers of migrant workers in the area, in addition to the rest of the community, in order to plan services. As part of the META Health project, META staff will be helping migrant workers in the Thetford area to understand the purpose of the Census and complete their Census forms accurately. ‘Completion events’ will be held for migrant workers at META (The Limes, 32 Bridge Street, Thetford)

in conjunction with Census officials in the period leading up to 27 March. Please see next month’s edition of this newsletter for more information and dates. When your Census questionnaire envelope comes through the door you should easily recognise it by the purple 2011 Census logo. Take care of it. If, like many people, you want to complete the questionnaire online, your individual internet code is on the front of the questionnaire. More information about the 2011 Census can be found at: www.census.gov.uk or META on 01842 754639.

A hearty warm start to the day (and it fills you up longer)! Porridge is very satisfying and good for you - especially when served with fruit. What’s more, porridge oats are very economical to buy, and much better for you than sugarcoated cereal. A great way to start your day! Serves: 4 Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 10 minutes Approximate cost for recipe: 70p Approximate cost per serving: 17.5p • 150g porridge oats • 900ml (1½ pints) cold water (or semi skimmed milk)

1.

Put the porridge oats and water into a non-stick saucepan. Heat and stir until boiling, then reduce the heat and simmer gently, stirring often, for 5 minutes.

2.

Share the porridge between 4 serving bowls and top each portion with 2 tablespoons of yoghurt. Spoon the berries on top, then serve.

Tip 1: Try to remember to take the frozen fruit out of the freezer the night before, so that it has thawed out in time for breakfast. Tip 2: Try spooning some canned pineapple in natural juice over the yoghurt instead of using berries.

• 8 tablespoons low-fat natural yoghurt • 100g frozen summer berries or forest fruits, thawed
