A HEALTH and wellbeing centre is expanding its services.

Cornerstone, in Sir Isaac’s Walk, Colchester, offers weight management programmes, NHS health checks, stop smoking help, health trainers, health visitors, sexual health and urology.

Services specifically for young people include chlamydia screening and family planning clinics.

Karen Stimpson, newlyappointed health and wellbeing support services manager for Anglian Community Enterprise, which runs Cornerstone, said it was hoped it would become a onestop shop for the 25,000 people who pass through its doors every year. She said: “Now we are centralising all our health improvement services at the centre, we expect it to become even busier.”

In the last two years, Cornerstone has added a service for moderate non-dependent drinkers, has representatives from Cope, a charity providing information, advice and support to people who have eating disorders, and an immunisation team providing MMR and HPV vaccinations.

There is also an infant feeding room and a young person’s Sexual Health and Drug/Alcohol Service.

Cornerstone has also become a community venue for adult weight management programmes, Shape-Up and My Weight Matters.

Urology !
Now that is a funny one. The biggest single threat and scourge to cancer in men over 45 and this team are doing Urology ?
I wonder what they know about male Urological Issues ?
When I went in there they gave me a leaflet and told me to go and see my GP.
That is not Urology advice. Here is my advice to my fellow men.
1. Discharging less than 200 Ml per session when you go to the toilet.
2. Getting up more than 4 times per night to go the toilet?
3. Stop start during the urination cycle and struggling ?
4. Pain burning sensation or any other odd feeling during voiding s ?
Get to your GP immediately !

PS: And please no taking the P*SS from other posters on the this thread thank you !
