GENERAL ADVICE ON HEALTH

Take it from the experts. If you'd like more advice on any of these subjects, book an appointment with our practice nurse of with your GP.

Weight

Lose weight. Diet and exercise is the way to do it. Do you want to see our dietitian?

Smoking

Stop smoking now. Stop poisoning yourself. We may be able to help and support you.

Medication

We would all like to reduce the amount of tablets people are taking. Continually review your prescription with your doctor. You may not need all the medicines, pills or tonics you are taking. Talk to your doctor.

Alcohol

Use alcohol in moderation.

If you have problems with alcohol seek help now. The problem will not go away.


Diet

Our diet is too high in sugar and fat. We all eat too much processed food and junk food. Eat plenty of fruit and fresh vegetables. Most of us eat too much.

Stress

Anxiety and stress are part of all our lives now. There are no easy answers to anxiety and stress, it is part of our lives. Too much anxiety and stress is bad for your physical and mental health. Try to bring balance into your life between work, time off and family life. Take time for yourself. Be nice to yourself.

Exercise

The health benefits are enormous. Please increase your exercise level and be persistent.
