About World AIDS Day

Health Weeks


World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year. It raises awareness across the world and in the community about HIV and AIDS. It is a day for the community to show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died of AIDS related conditions or other conditions associated with HIV.

Pharmacy news

Pete has been at Eden Rise Pharmacy from the day it opened (actually, even before!) so if you have a question, he’s generally your guy.

Pete loves the wide variety of people that come through the pharmacy. He’s got three kids aged between 4 and 10, so he loves being able to help parents, and provide advice and reassurance to brand new parents who can often, understandably, be nervous or worried.

He’s also enjoyed seeing the development and growth of Eden Rise into a real health hub, particularly now that there’s Langmore Clinic , CoreDental , pathology and eye testing in the centre.

If Pete wasn’t a pharmacist, he’d likely be working in IT, and his IT skills definitely come in handy when there are issues with the computers!

Otherwise, Pete loves reading biographies, and watching Top Gear UK (the original series, of course), the new series of The Crown, or his all-time favourite movie, Back to the Future.

Pete – we love your dedication and hard work. You never stop trying to do the best for your patients, and you’ve formed real relationships with them.

Health & Wellness

In the first five years of life, a child’s brain and body develops more quickly than at any other time. When babies are young, their learning and development mostly happens within the family at home. As they grow and develop, children will start to learn from others in the community – friends, peers, and early childhood educators.
