We are especially interested in promoting good health and preventing illness. The following are some preventative health issues:
Diabetes – We have in house dietitians who can help you with your diabetics plans
Weight Management – We have in house dietitians who can advise you with your calories and food in take for a healthier lifestyle.
Smoking – We strongly encourage a no smoking policy. Quit smoking is supported by all staff and we are happy to assist you in any possible way. This is no doubt that smoking is a health hazard.
Vaccination & Immunisation – we strongly encourage all children to complete their immunisation and this can be arranged through the doctor. We also support immunisation of all adults for tetanus, diphtheria and polio, Hepatitis A/B and Influenza.
Cholesterol – It is important to have this checked, particularly if you have a family history of heart disease, have diabetes or smoke.
Pap Smear Test – This test detects change in the cervix (neck of womb), before cancer develops and so can be easily treated. It is recommended that all women between the ages of 18-70 should have pap smear tests every 2 years, unless otherwise advised by the doctor.
Breast examination – Breast self examination should be performed by the woman every month, annual breast examination should be performed by the doctor annually and mammogram should be performed every 2 years (especially women over 50 years).
Blood Pressure – High blood pressure can increase the risk of heart attacks and stroke. All adults should have their blood pressure checked yearly or more often if it has ever been raised.
