It's flu vaccination season - the time to think about your winter health
Even though we’ve just said goodbye to the summer holidays, now is the time to start thinking about protecting your health over winter with a flu vaccination.

Most GP practices across east and west Suffolk will soon be holding flu vaccination clinics for their registered patients - and people in at-risk groups are being encouraged to attend. Many pharmacies also provide NHS flu vaccinations for those in at-risk groups aged 18+.
Latest local health newsletters are published
The latest newsletters from NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk and NHS West Suffolk clinical commissioning groups have just been published.

Highlights include:

- Launch of new film which highlights how those living with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes could benefit from signing-up to a free NHS My Diabetes course
Meetings in public - NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group

A meeting in public of the Governing Body of NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group will take place on Tuesday September 25 from 9.00 a.m. Come along to this meeting to learn more about health services in the Ipswich and east Suffolk area. 

A meeting in public of the Primary Care Commissioning Committee for east and west Suffolk will take place on Tuesday September 25 from 2.00 p.m. This committee is the decision-making group for the management of primary care (GP practices). Members of the public are welcome to come along and listen to the business of the meeting and ask questions at the end.

New support for those bereaved by suicide

To mark World Suicide Prevention Day, Suffolk’s suicide prevention steering group has today announced it will be launching a new service to support individuals, families and others bereaved by suicide.

The 12-month pilot service will be joint funded by Suffolk County Council (SCC) Public Health and Ipswich & East Suffolk and West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). The total funding for the service is £30,000, with Suffolk County Council providing £22,000 and CCGs funding £8,000.

Remodelling services for children and young people with speech, language and communication needs

A series of sessions are being held this month to gather people’s views on improving speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) services for Suffolk’s children and young people.

More than 10% of children and young people have long-term SLCN, which create barriers to communication or learning in everyday life. Only 20% of pupils with SLCN gained grade 4/c or above in English and Maths at GCSE, compared with 64% of all pupils.
