Women’s Health Week

This week is Women’s Health Week
7-11 September 2020

This is a great opportunity for practices to think about Criterion C4.1 – Health promotion and preventive care. Your practice should have a systematic approach to health promotion and preventive care. All discussions or activities regarding preventive care and/or early detection undertaken by GPs and nurses must be recorded in the patient’s health record. You could have a routine reminder system in place to remind patients of annual checks (e.g. cervical screening) remembering that you should seek their consent before placing them on a formal reminder system – this can be done on your New Patient Form and/or by using an opt-out system on your Patient Information Sheet.
