CHHP

The Centre for Health and Human Performance (CHHP) began as a new concept in fully integrated specialist services directly accessible to anyone in 2007. Following a major expansion in 2013, CHHP was established as a leading specialist centre in Health and Human Performance helping you get more out of your life for longer.

All under one roof, our centre combines the very latest in Specialist Medicine, Human Performance, Sport and Exercise Medicine, Nutrition, Physiotherapy and Sport Science.

Unlike many practices, we not only work as individuals in our fields of expertise, but we combine our knowledge, working together as a ‘multi-disciplinary team’.

From one legend to another, sending a huge happy birthday to the wonderful Tom Jackson.

With many years in professional sport (he’s older than he looks 😉) Tom has an amazing ability to very quickly assess and nail issues and injuries, to get you back to what you love. Not only that, he is always a breath of fresh air and brings laughter to every room.

We love you Tom have a great day 🥰🎁

We have two very special birthdays to celebrate today 🎁 🍰 so where do we start?

Well it’s ladies first so a big big happy birthday to our legendary Consultant in Sport & Exercise Medicine, Dr Rebecca Robinson.

It’s a well known fact that we never have any photos of her doing anything other than running so here she is doing what she loves best 🏃‍♀️

Rebecca has been the rock behind CHHP this year, not only helping patients with cancer concerns; athletes and recreational athletes with sports injuries and worries but also sharing knowledge, helping staff and patients with COVID knowledge and managing to squeeze in a free clinic for those desperate to get back to exercise after illness.

Rebecca you are an all round superstar & please take a break for some coffee and cake today ! ☕️ 🎂

So much noise around vitamin D in winter and even more so during this pandemic BUT how do you know what’s right?

Here is some useful info on vit D from Dietitian, Holly Dempsey.
Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones, teeth & muscles as well as playing an important role in supporting a healthy immune system.

🌞 🌞 , not food, is our main source of vit D. The amount of vit D you get depends on how strong the ☀️ is, hence in the UK, Vit D deficiency is common, especially in Autumn and Winter. Therefore, the UK public health advice is to take a supplement of 10 µg of vit D p/day during these seasons. Usually in spring, we may consider stopping this, however, as we are all spending time indoors it may be beneficial to continue.

Interestingly, an opinion piece was recently published in the Irish Medical Journal by Dr. Daniel McCarthy & Dr Declan Byrne explaining the existing data & proposed mechanism for the association of inadequate vit D status & increased risk of respiratory infections & community acquired pneumonia. They suggested that in view of this pandemic (nb. the analysis was not based on data specific to Covid-19) that those at risk (older adults, hospital inpatients, nursing home residents, those with compromised immune function; diabetes mellitus, those with darker skin, vegans, vegetarians, smokers, healthworkers & those who are overweight /obese) should begin supplementing with 20-50µg/day of vitamin D for the next 3-6months.

If you do want to take more than 20µg/day of vit D please consult your doc. or book a virtual consult with our team as monitoring may be necessary to prevent levels of vit D in the blood becoming too high.

As well as supplementing with vitamin D it is important to include plenty of dietary sources in your diet. Sources include:
Oily fish -salmon, sardines, pilchards, trout, herring, kippers & eel contain reasonable amounts of vit D.

Cod liver oil contains a lot of vitamin D- don’t take this if you are pregnant.

Egg yolk, meat, offal and milk contain small amounts (seasonal variation)

Margarine, some breakfast cereals & some yoghurts are fortified with vit D.
