The third week in April will be Heart Health Awareness week. This coincides with the new Heart Health Check that Medicare have rolled out. This will be a 20 minute appointment with our wonderful nurses followed by a 10 minute appointment with your regular doctor. Topics raised will be preventative health, discussing risk factors, cholesterol check, diabetes risk assessment etc.
The second week of April we will be doing a display for Fruit & Veggies Week. We have displays up encouraging patients to learn the different reasons why each individual vegetable or fruit is good for you and what uses it has for your body. We hope to get children engaged in the conversation and have pictures up on reception showing fun ways to serve fruit and veggies!!
