Lifestyle

Smoking

We are keen to give all our patients who smoke as much help as possible to stop.  Please ask at reception or at any consultation for information and support.

Walking

Even the smallest effort can improve your quality of life and make you feel healthier and livelier.  As walking is a very good exercise which most people are able to do, and don’t need any special equipment for, then why not get started on your fitness campaign.  Simply start by walking for 15 or 20 minutes at a brisk enough pace to get your heart beating faster, 3 times a week regularly.  When you can easily walk for an hour you are ready to move onto swimming, cycling or running!

Healthy Eating

A healthy diet doesn’t need to be a boring one.  Health experts tell us we are eating too much fat, salt etc, but what exactly does this mean?  Why not speak to your doctor/nurse or pick up some of our information leaflets so you can enjoy a healthier diet?

Source of Information

Leaflets and other written information about various illnesses and conditions are available on display and from our practice nurses.  Some information may be provided to you at consultation.  Our practice produces some printed information from time to time, please enquire at reception.

Community Based Services

Very useful services are offered by our community based pharmacists and opticians i.e. smoking advice/treatment, minor ailments and eye health.  Please contact your local pharmacist or optician directly.
