We Would Like To Practice Preventative Medicine


Ask yourself:

  • Have you had your blood pressure checked in the last three years?
  • If you are a woman of childbearing age or a teenage girl, do you know if you are immune to Rubella (German Measles)? A simple blood test will tell you if you need further immunisation.
  • If you are a woman aged 25yrs and over – Have you had a cervical smear in the last 3 years?
  • Do you know how to check yourself for breast or testicular lumps?
  • Do you think it is time to give up smoking?
