North Sheffield’s “Whats on Where” Guide – find out whats happening near to you

11 Apr


As we get older it is important to remain as active as possible, not only to keep in physical shape, but it has been proven that exercising and socialising with others is key to improving mental health.

In an attempt to combat social isolation across Sheffield, Home Instead have put together a What’s On Where Guide which provides a list of easily accessible activities in Sheffield such as; Choir Groups, Dance Classes, Art groups, Lunch Clubs, Coffee Mornings and many more!

Home Instead hope their guide will encourage people to get involved in the community and ultimately, reduce social isolation.

Take a look at the Home Instead WOW guide using the link below!


If you would like more information about the WOW Guide or organise an activity within Sheffield and would like it to feature in the next WOW Guide then call Home Instead on 01142 469666

Sheffield GPs launch fresh crackdown on people missing doctors appointments

11 Apr

Sheffield GPs have launched a fresh crackdown on people missing appointments – with a little help from city school children. GPs at surgeries in Chapeltown and High Green are part of a pilot to urge people to cancel their appointments if they can’t attend.

People missing appointments without letting their practice know costs the NHS in Sheffield millions each year. Chapelgreen GP Practice worked with Ecclesfield School to create ‘DNA (Did Not Attend) Man’, the superhero figurehead for the campaign which is now being rolled out across their neighbouring practices.

The GP group has been praised after introducing small changes over a six month period. These include approaching patients who fail to attend on a regular basis, and adding a ‘patient promise’ at the end of each appointment booking, asking people to promise to cancel the appointment is they can’t attend. Practice bosses said they’ve seen a ‘significant reduction’ and are confident to bring the figure down even further.
