Down at the Doctors March 2024

Posted on January 29th, 2024

We will kick off this month with a message from our Patient Group who continue to do excellent work on our behalf. Following this, Sheryl one of our Practice Nurses has written a piece for you.

We are starting a new initiative at Little Hadham Village Hall with our Patient Group, to help patients gain access to their medical information via the NHS App. 

The NHS App gives 24-hour access to your personal health records, appointment booking or repeat prescription ordering, to name but a few, giving patients more flexibility with their medical information. There are more and more NHS services going down the digital route. If it’s not via the NHS App it will be something else like booking blood tests etc. online. So, if you would like to be part of our Pilot Scheme for setting up the NHS App on your digital device please email Andrew Wilkinson, the Much Hadham Health Centre Practice Manager on much.hadham@nhs.net 

Hello to everyone and especially to those who haven’t met me yet……..

My name is Sheryl Moody and I am one of the four nurses here at Much Hadham Health Centre. I work part time so you will usually bump into me on a Mon, Tues or Wed.

At work, one of my greatest joys is supporting people to take care of themselves better and improve their own health. It is well known that the best way to do that is to pay attention to having a healthy, balanced nutritional intake and being physically active. These two elements are the foundation of achieving better health. If we don’t smoke and consume alcohol moderately, we are really cracking it.

Aside from my General Practice Nurse duties, since April last year I have been asked to take on the role of undertaking Diabetes Annual Reviews along with Nurse Sophie and Dr Tish. Having a review has been shown to be helpful in reducing or avoiding the complications of Diabetes. If anybody has been putting off their review, please do make an appointment and I will very much look forward to seeing you.

On a personal note, I am married with two grown up children. I am by nature a very outdoorsy person. Most of my time is spent walking my Collie dog, caring for my chickens and looking after my bees who make the most delicious honey. I have also been known to do a bit of scything and on a sunny day I might be spotted zipping about the Hertfordshire and Essex countryside on the back of a motor bike…….

To help keep myself healthy, I have an allotment and each growing season I try to grow more fruit and veg than I did the year before. Each week I run 5K, cycle and practice yoga. I take part in the ParkRun once a month which is really good fun and open to all. All these habits I have developed over time. Small changes over time can reap rich rewards.

Well, that’s quite enough about me.

I wish good and better health to us all.

Sheryl
