NHS Medical Research

As part of a drive by Glasgow Central Mosque to raise awareness on health related issues, we are pleased to announce a programme working in partnership with the NHS to carry out medical research into the treatment of high blood pressure.

This will help us to possibly identify the best course of treatment for mainly Africans and South Asians.

There will be stalls in the mens and ladies foyer areas, and a seperate testing area within Glasgow Central Mosque on Friday 11th October and 25th October, from 1pm to 4pm.

We invite you to help us find a more effective treatment strategy for high blood pressure.

If you have any queries, concerns or for further information please contact Siouxsie Mackenzie on 07801 316091 or email siouxsie.mackenzie@ggc.scot.nhs.uk.

 

 

Hepatitis Awareness & Testing

Glasgow Central Mosque are pleased to continue working in partnership with The Hepatitis C Trust to raise awareness and test members of the public in a drive to tackle this “hidden” epidemic.

This Friday 4th October, from 10am till 3pm, a talk and testing will be available for both males and females in the Small Community Hall. (females tested separately by dedicated female professionals).

Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus which can cause fatal liver damage and cancer. There are around 34,500 people chronically infected with hepatitis C in Scotland. Hepatitis C is often called a “hidden” epidemic because the virus does not cause obvious symptoms and most people lack awareness of the disease. In Scotland, approximately 15,500 (45% of the total) people living with hepatitis C have yet to be diagnosed. Hepatitis C is more common in some ethnic minorities, including the South Asian community.

We encourage all to attend. If you have any questions or queries please email helpline@hepctrust.org.uk.

Hepatitis Awareness

In Scotland, approximately 15,500 (45% of the total) people living with hepatitis C have yet to be diagnosed. Hepatitis C is more common in some ethnic minorities, including the South Asian community. The virus is transferred through blood-to-blood contact, where poor sterilisation practices in some South Asian countries mean there is a higher prevalence among this community.
