We are happy to see all adults every three years for a routine medical. Advice about diet, exercise etc., is available. Women are encouraged to have regular cervical smears that can be carried out either by the Practice Nurse, Nurse Practitioner or the Doctor of their choice.If you are aged over 75 we offer annual check-ups at the Surgery unless housebound.
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 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 on to swimming, cycling or running!
Healthy eating - A healthy diet doesn’t need to be a boring one. Health experts tell us we are all 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?
Did you know many of the staff at the surgery are keen cyclists.
