Healthy Living for all

Cheshire East Council offer a range of services to promote Public Health, please visit for more information.

Blood Pressure - You rarely know if your blood pressure is raised so it is important to ask for a blood pressure check 5 yearly in everyone over 20 years. If you have a strong family history of hypertension or are taking tablets for blood pressure, as a new patient please make a appointment with the nurses in the surgery for a routine blood pressure check up.

Smoking - Smoking seriously damages your health and we are anxious to assist and support all our patients in stopping. If you feel you would like advice about nicotine replacement therapies please visit your community pharmacy.

Diet - For good health, it is advisable for all adults to eat a diet low in animal (saturated) fat, low in salt with at least 5 portions of fruit/vegetables a day. If you would like advice on diet and weight reduction, please book an appointment with the Health Care Assistant.

Exercise - Regular exercise will protect against heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Exercise doesn’t mean you need to do a violent workout at the gym! The ideal is moderate exercise, e.g. Brisk walking for at least 30 minutes, 5 time a week.

Alcohol - Drink alcohol moderately. For women up 14 units per week is safe, i.e. 14 shorts or 7 pints of beer. For men up to 21 units per week, i.e. 21 shorts or 10 pints of beer.
