HEALTH PROMOTION

Promoting Good Health

In promoting good health, we give information and advice to patients so that they can be encouraged to be in the best health that they can achieve.  

Amongst the wide range of areas covered, we offer immunisation programmes and special  efforts to prevent or delay the onset of diseases such as COPD, IHD, STIs and diabetes. 

Promoting healthy lifestyles, ideally from a young age, can help in bridging the equality gap between those in society who are disadvantaged and others. Smoking, obesity and alcohol consumption are major risk factors for many diseases.

Key Areas 

Here are some important areas in promoting good health

Obesity
