Many people have been indoors more than usual this year and so might not have been making enough vitamin D from sunlight. Particularly during the autumn and winter months, everyone is advised to take a supplement of vitamin D every day to support general health and in particular for bone and muscle health.
Vitamin D supplements are available to purchase in pharmacies, health food shops, and supermarkets. It is expected that patients will purchase such supplements. Community pharmacists or other healthcare professionals are able to advise on suitable vitamin D products.
KIDS SEND Mediation Service, which is jointly commissioned by NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Norfolk County Council, has recently been announced as the winner of the prestigious National SEND Mediation Award 2020.
KIDS SEND Mediation Service is an independent mediation and disagreement resolution service, which is free of charge for parents/carers and young people. The service helps to settle disagreements between parents or young people and local authorities and schools or other education providers. These disputes are often about the special educational needs and disability (SEND) of children and young people, and how best to meet their needs.
