A large part of our time is spent promoting good health and preventing disease.
We also target patients who may be at special risk of developing certain illnesses, offering them advice and practical steps to reduce their risk.
We would encourage all our patients to take a number of steps to better health:
- Stop smoking
- Moderate alcohol consumption
- Eat a high fibre/low fat diet
- Keep your weight under control
- Exercise regularly
- Avoid sunburn
- Check breasts and testicles regularly
Also, where appropriate, blood pressure checks, cholesterol testing, breast and cervical smear examinations will be carried out at the surgery.
