    I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed across the health system and in the community to using antibiotics appropriately to help in the fight against antibiotic resistance. This means we can ensure antibiotics are effective when we really need them. Winter’s a great time to remind people that antibiotics aren’t effective against common infections such as a cold.

    Id like to say a really big thank you to Maureen who works hard all year round working within communities in Leeds. In particular the work she does with those who struggle both before and after the Christmas period. She works tirelessly to make sure that as many people as possible receive something at Christmas whether this be a Christmas hamper, food and clothes donations, winter warmers for the elderly and toys for children all so that families and elderly who struggle don't go without. Community lunches are also something Maureen and the team she works with pull together which are especially important over the winter period which is a time where many are often socially isolated. These lunches provide time for those vulnerable groups to be brought together in a warm, festive environment to enjoy a meal together and the opportunity to participate in activities. The work Maureen does is invaluable and I'm sure those who know her would agree. Thank you Maureen!

    My local hairdressers

    I would like to say thank you to the staff at my local hairdressers. I think they play such an important role in the community - I know they are a source of support & a reason to get out for lots of older people and they will let family know if someone does‘t show up when expected. But they also go the extra mile to make kids feel at home & offer extra support to those who need it.
