TASL is pleased to announce that it is the city’s new provider of non-emergency medical transport service for patients registered with a Hull GP. TASL will provide a fully patient-centred service with a focus on safety, timeliness, comfort and wellbeing.
TASL has been actively working with NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to ensure a seamless transfer of services with journeys from 1 April already transferred into TASL’s booking systems.
Health leaders are encouraging pregnant women in Hull to take their first steps to stopping smoking following the release of figures stating almost 21% of pregnant women in the city smoke*.
Smoking during pregnancy not only increases mothers’ risk of cancer and related health issues, but can also have a huge effect on the health of the unborn child, including the child potentially suffering with asthma for life, increased risk of miscarriage and stillbirth or complications at and after birth.
The Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) at Bransholme Health Centre will now open from 9am – 10pm, seven days a week, with immediate effect.
People in Hull are able to access the MIU for treatment of injuries which require immediate treatment, but which are not serious enough to attend Accident and Emergency (A&E), such as; cuts and wounds, sprains and strains, stings, bites and burns.
