Our PPG has been working very hard over the past year to develop an information booklet called kesgrave cares. This booklet includes information on groups and services that are available in the local area and we are very pleased to say that a copy of this has been posted out to patient households over the age of 65. We are very proud of this booklet and the vital information this provides. You can download and read an electronic copy here.
