Maeve Hully, PCC Chief Executive
While we are enjoying having time to spend with our families, maybe we should spare a thought for those people who dread the holiday season more than any other time of year, particularly people who feel lonely. Watching everyone around them connect with those they love can make their own feelings of emotional isolation greater. Holidays can make loneliness feel especially obvious with people imagining that they are the only ones who have no-one to spend Christmas with.
I hope you have a worry free Christmas. Take care of yourself, your family, friends and neighbours.
At this time of year it’s important to take care of both emotional and physical health. Health and Social Care has a range of information online, to help you look after yourself, and take actions to help stay well over this festive season, and beyond. This includes information on Pharmacies; Out of hours GP Service; Out of hours Dental Services; Out of hours Emergency Social Work Service; Minor Injuries Unit; Emergency Departments and Lifeline Crisis Response
As we approach the new year it is timely for us to reflect on the past 12 months and to thank all of you for your contribution and ongoing support to our work. By sharing your views, thoughts and time you are helping to make services better and safer for everyone. From all of us at the Patient and Client Council I’d like to wish you a Happy Christmas and best wishes for the new year.
