Welcome Back The Cockermouth Post… we’ve missed you!

April was Foot Health Month, when all HCPC Registered Podiatrists are encouraged, by the College of Podiatry,

to promote the

profession, educating the public that we are the specialists in ALL aspects of foot and lower-limb function and health. Podiatrists, also

known as Chiropodists, are regulated Health Care Professionals, trained to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and prevent conditions and complications of the foot and lower limb. Podiatrists prevent, manage and correct foot irregularities, relieve pain, treat infection and keep people of all ages mobile and active.

If you have foot pain or ANY foot problems, put your feet in safe hands and see an HCPC registered Podiatrist. HCPC: Health and Care Professions Council.

Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Podiatry Services do not provide regular routine footcare to people who are not at risk of a serious foot health complications. For those lucky healthy patients with healthy feet, not at risk of serious foot conditions and only require routine footcare, the NHS Podiatry Services are suggesting other options available which includes Private HCPC Registered Podiatrists/ Chiropodists.

To find a registered Podiatrist near you search or NHS Choices

INFO@THECOCKERMOUTHPOST.CO.UK Getting Carers Connected Carers Week begins on 10th June and will focus on 'Getting Carers Connected'.

Caring can impact on all aspects of life, from relationships and health to finances and work. Caring without the right information and support can be tough.

CONNECT WITH US! Your local carers' organisation can you help you connect with a range of services, such as:

• Support to complete benefit paperwork • Referrals to other services, such as the DWP home visiting team and Adult Social Care • A carer’s assessment to identify which services will help each individual caring role, such as grants and funding, carer’s breaks and occupational therapy • Volunteer services, including drivers, sitters and counsellors • 1:1 support from a support worker, either over the phone or face-to-face • Connecting to other carers - we have a range of regular opportunities for carers to get together, such as our Caring ‘n’ Sharing Cuppa drop-ins and Carers Forums

We will be holding a number of activities throughout Carers Week to raise awareness of caring.

On Tuesday 11th June, we will be donning our lycra for a Spinathon at Workington Leisure Centre. The aim is to cycle 150 miles in 1 hour. There are 30 bikes available, so if you or anyone you know would like to do a few miles and help us raise funds, please get in touch.

We will also have an information stall in the foyer if you would like to just pop in and say Hi!

On Wednesday 12th June, we will be holding a Cupcakes4Carers event in Cockermouth. Call in for a cuppa and some cake between 10.00am and 1.00pm.

On Friday 14th June, why not join in the fun on our pyjama day? Wear your pj’s to work or school and donate £1.00 to us. Get your colleagues, friends and family involved.

If you’d like to get involved in our activities this Carers Week, or would just like some more information on getting connected, give us a call on 01900 821976.


The clinic offers a wide range of services: physiotherapy, remedial massage, acupuncture, hydrotherapy and small group exercise classes.

Our physios have a combined 50+ years of experience in physiotherapy and exercise rehab, treating pain and sports injury.

We offer physio-lead hydrotherapy for pre and post-operative patients and for people struggling to exercise on land. The benefits of moving in (warm) water, within a group is well-documented and has been proven to help reduce recovery time.

We have physiotherapists who are qualified to treat a range of symptoms using acupuncture, for example chronic pain, anxiety and menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes.

In the clinic, we now offer a range of small group exercise classes focusing on different abilities and specific needs, enabling you to move more freely with confidence and ongoing support. Designed for people continuing on after physiotherapy treatment, those wanting to work on mobility, flexibility and strength, injury prevention, improving posture and are available to all ages.

Regular massage can be used to help maintain healthy functioning muscles, as well as treating overworked and injured muscles. Working alongside physios, our massage therapist has gained deeper understanding of how the body functions and the way muscles work. Massage reduces tension and tenderness, as well as stretching the muscles and other connective tissues, allowing the body to move more freely. Easing tension helps with stress, postural problems, improves sense of wellbeing and can aid recovery from sports performance.
