It’s mental health Awareness week (18th -24th May)
This is a Mental Health Awareness Week with a difference.
Many of us are worried about coronavirus and how it will affect us and those we love. The theme of Mental Health Awareness Week this year is “kindness”.
This is why we are encouraging you to #SpeakYourMind and reach out to someone who needs a friend with a kind message, or share with them your own tips for coping to make sure they don’t have to face this pandemic alone.
#QuitforCovid and Stop Smoking Support in North Tyneside
#QuitforCovid is a call to action. The term was coined by the NHS – from Dr Charlie Kenward, a GP at a Practice in Bristol, who explains: “I was in surgery talking to a mother with her 9-year-old son. She said she was worried about catching it because she is a smoker. I asked her why not quit? She looked at her son who looked back at her and nodded. This is something all smokers can do now so that’s why I’m asking smokers to #QuitforCovid.”

There are a number of pharmacies across North Tyneside offering telephone support to stop smoking. They can also arrange access to discounted or free medications to help smokers to quit, which can be collected by relatives if smokers are unable to, or delivered in some cases. The list of pharmacies offering telephone support can be found here.
We can now offer online services. This allows you to book appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view your medical record online. Click here for more details.
