MMR

In 2023, there were 1603 suspected cases of Measles in England and Wales compared to only 735 in 2022 and 360 in 2021. On behalf of Sutton GP Practices, we are running MMR Vaccination Catch Up Clinics from February-March 2024 for patients who may not be up to date with their vaccinations.

Life Saving Poo

 The bowel cancer screening kit can save your life.

NHS bowel cancer screening checks if you could have bowel cancer. It’s available to everyone aged 60 to 74 years. The programme is expanding to make it available to everyone aged 50 to 59 years.

Just a tiny sample detects signs of cancer before you notice anything wrong. 

If you’re sent a kit, put it by the loo. Don’t put it off.
