KEEPING HEALTHY - advice and information

With all the pressures of modern life, staying healthy can be a challenge. But if you learn to recognise risks to your health you have a much better chance of keeping fitter and living longer. Using the NHS Choices personal HEALTH CHECK CALCULATOR can help you gauge whether you need to take action on eating and exercise. And if you're a smoker, you can work out how much money you'll save by quitting.

You can also use the 'HOW ARE YOU QUIZ' to check-out how you are doing health wise.


RECENTLY RETIRED patients are encouraged to attend for a general health check up and discussion about any health concerns with our HCA. Click the link here to find out more about how retirement can effect your health.
