Brechin Healthcare Group

Brechin Healthcare Group (BHG) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), No. SC047731.

BHG’s charitable purposes are:

To advance health and the relief of those in need by reason of age, ill health, disability, or financial hardship, or other disadvantage.
To advance health, through the provision of medical equipment and facilities, and through the provision of relief to those suffering from illness.

BHG has been formed to benefit the community of Brechin and Edzell and The Glens. Geographically the community is roughly within a radius of 10 miles from Brechin, but also includes those areas of the Angus Glens and south Aberdeenshire covered by GP Practices in Brechin and Edzell.

OOTANABOOT

We named our walking group OOTANABOOT because that is what we do, go out and about, mainly in Angus but occasionally we stray into Aberdeenshire and even Dundee.

OOTANABOOT is the result of an initiative by Angus Council, NHS Tayside and Paths for All who promote health walks, in Arbroath, Carnoustie, Edzell, Forfar, Kirriemuir, Letham and Montrose. Brechin, sadly, had to break away because we were, quite correctly, no longer considered doing health walks, chiefly because we ventured out of Brechin and walked over an hour.

The principles are the same though which is to allow, mainly older folks though we welcome younger ones, to enjoy socialising while exercising, admiring the wonderful scenery in our area. All walks are risk assessed; a four monthly programme is made up with suggestions from those participating so that choice is always there. Cars are available for transport, drivers receiving a thank you penny at the end or a coffee and cake at the many coffee shops we find on our travels!

Why walk, you ask? Well……………………….

It improves mood and may reduce the risk of depression.

Lowers the risk of strokes and can control diabetes

Can also reduce the risk of heart disease by half

It’s free

You don’t need special equipment

It’s a chance to make new friends, feel good and have fun.

Join us each Wednesday at 1pm (13.00) – we meet and leave from Brechin Library. You will be made to feel very welcome.

Health shop staff and volunteers can help people living with long term conditions access information to help them manage their condition. We are able to signpost to local and national organisations and sources of support that can help further support patients with their condition.

Our information can be used to encourage self management which means that  patients are

•better informed about their condition(s)

•better prepared for everyday challenges

•better supported when they need it

The information provided at the Health Shop is not a substitute for medical advice but is there to support it.

 

Health Shop volunteers are happy to send out information on request and can liaise with ward staff to ensure that in-patients can receive the health information that they require.

 

The Health Shop has sites at:

• Ninewells Hospital, main concourse

• Perth Royal Infirmary, by main reception

• Whitehills HCCC, by main reception

• Links HC, by outpatient‘s reception
