Winchester Market


Last Thursday Everycare (Central Hants) Ltd had a stall on Winchester Market. We attracted lots of visitors and enjoyed communicating with many local people about the Home Care and Live-in Care services that we provide. We also got the opportunity to talk about our current employment opportunities.

A big thank you to our wonderful staff that came down to support us.

We had a very successful and fun day and hope to do this again in the future.

Temozolomide Recall – Do you have any in your home?

Health Care Home Care

For those receiving Care at Home we want to make you aware of this Drug Recall. This drug is used in the treatment of Brain Tumours.

A Drug Alert has been issued, recalling some Temozolomide  (sometimes known as TMZ) capsules made by Hospira.

This follows reports of the capsules splitting and leaking powder.

If you have this medicine at home, you should not open the pack. If a capsule is damaged, you should avoid contact of the powder with your skin, eyes and nose and avoid inhaling the powder.

If you accidentally get some on your skin, wash with soap and water or in the case of contact with the eyes or nose, wash with water only. If irritation persists you should seek medical advice. You should be able to obtain an alternative prescription and get your medicine replaced.

Affected batch numbers are:
L00828 – 5 mg
L00829 – 20 mg
L00831 – 100 mg
L01031 – 250 mg
