Health Promotion

The aim of promoting health is to try to identify risk factors at an early stage and prevent them from causing ill health. For this reason, we ask about drinking and smoking habits and measure your blood pressure and weight from time to time. This is especially wise in people with a family history of heart disease, diabetes or stroke. We also offer advice concerning diabetes, asthma, stress, heart disease. Please book an appointment with the nurse or doctor if you require any advice.

Cervical Smears

It is very important for all women aged over 24½ years to have regular cytology screening.

Women aged 24½ - 49 years will be screened every three years and women aged 50-64 years will be screened every five years.
