Tips from Surrey Physio
Here are some tips from Surrey Physio to help you overcome some aches and pains in your lower back:

1.    Stay mobile. Yes, back pain typically affects people who sit all day. Get up and move around every 30 minutes.
2.    Be careful if your job involves a lot of regular forward bending. Try to minimise it, if you fit this category, as you might be putting unnecessary strain through your lower back discs.
3.    Raise your computer monitor, it helps encourage you to sit up straight, which will reduce slouching and help prevent lower back pain.
4.    Exercise at least three times per week, even if its just a 20 minute walk twice a week and a swim. Exercise keeps your muscles strong, and back mobile.
5.    If you have acute lower back pain, apply 5 minutes of ice wrapped in a tea towel to your lower back for pain relief. Do this 3-5 times per day.
6.    Feel free to call Surrey Physio for a private consultation on 0208 685 6930 or visit their website www.surreyphysio.co.uk . For more self help advice click here.

EPS - Electronic Prescribing Service
Parkside Group Practice now offers an Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS). EPS is an NHS Service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. If you use a regular chemist/pharmacy for your medications your prescription can be sent electronically from the GP surgery to your nominated chemist/pharmacy.  For more information please speak to your pharmacy about EPS.

EMERGENCY SMS - SMS to the emergency services 
The emergencySMS service lets deaf, hard of hearing and speech-impaired people in the UK send an SMS text message to the UK 999 service where it will be passed to the police, ambulance, fire rescue, or coastguard. Simply by sending an SMS message to 999 you can call for help and the emergency services will be able to reply to you.  For more info please see http://www.emergencysms.org.uk/
