The Little Orange Book
Newcastle Gateshead Clinical Commisioning Group (NGCCG) have developed a 'Little Orange Book' aimed at providing support to parents of young children. The book covers common minor illness, treatment and also times to seek medical assistance. They are available upon request via the Health visitor or when attending for childhood immunisations. Please see the PDF version below should you wish to download a digital copy.
Little Orange Book
We are a Teaching Practice who teaches stage 1, 2 and 4 Students. Every 6 month we have a rotation of GP Registrars and every 4 month we have 2 Foundation level 2 (F2) Doctors who have came here from Hospital posts to learn primary care. This is a huge benefit to our practice as it improves access & brings modern medicine, without them there would be no future GP's.

Cardiovascular Risks. (CVR risk)
We use a QRISK calculator, it calculates your 10 year risk of heart attach & stroke over the next 10 years. Should the result be more than 10%, patients will be asked if they would like to be prescribed a statin medication to help reduce the risk.
Lifestyle changes you could make to help reduce your CVR risk without medication include:
- Regular exercise, at least 150 minutes per week
- A Balanced diet, at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day
- Quit smoking
- Moderating the amount of alcohol you drink
- Losing weight
