Health and Wellbeing

We believe in supporting the Government's simple health message of eating five fruits and vegetables a day and exercising regularly for 30 minutes. 

Here are some of our Prime Tips .....  ­

  • Eating five fruit and vegetable a day provides important vitamins and minerals.  Eating healthier also makes you feel better both physically and mentally 
  • Try 30 minutes of exercise every day.  You can do anything you really enjoy and this includes swimming, dancing, gardening, just keep moving!  You will feel better
  • Socialising, learning, playing games, solving puzzles and cross words all keep your brain active 
  • Drink alcohol moderately as drinking too much can raise blood pressure 
  • Have regular health checks to check for high cholesterol and high blood pressure and to provide peace of mind.
  • Contact NHS Direct for confidential advice and information on health matters. http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/
