PSA testing and prostate cancer: advice for well men aged 50 and over


NHS services are there for you when you need them. But many people are using urgent care services with health concerns that could be treated by a GP or pharmacist. This makes these services very busy and means you and others may have to wait longer to be treated.

The NHS is doing everything it can to prepare for the extra pressures and demands over the busy winter months.

You can #HelpMyNHS to give the best care by making sure you and your loved ones get the right care, at the right time, in the right place. This website helps you do this by highlighting where you can get medical treatment that is right for you. It includes details on the alternative services to A&E and GPs, along with tips on using of GP appointments properly, taking steps to help prevent getting ill and self-manage minor illnesses, as well as other services, such as pharmacists.

It is tailored to include listings on specific services available to you across Sussex and East Surrey.

Surrey Independant Living Council

SILC helps disabled people, older people and carers to live independently and make the most of the support available in Surrey. We support people with physical, sensory and learning disabilities, people with mental health problems and people with other hidden impairments.

We (as in Surrey Independent Living Council - not Oxted Health Centre) can help people to:

·   Access a wide range of services

·   Decide what support options are right for them

·   Organise and purchase the support they need

·   Manage your on-going support

·   Have a voice in health and social care

Surrey Hubs:

The Surrey Hubs are local centres for information and support to help people stay independent. These user-led hubs are accessible to everyone, and offer a place to discuss your own needs or look for information and advice for yourself or a family member.

The Hubs are designed to cater specifically for the needs of disabled and older people as well as carers and are all based in central high street locations at the heart of the community, so they are very easy to find.

The information and support in the hubs is provided by people who are themselves disabled and therefore understand the issues you may be dealing with.
