Fitness and Exercise
This is the time of year that many people think of exercise… Whether it is the over indulgence of Christmas and Holidays, New Year’s Resolutions, Summer Sun.. We just tend to review what we are doing and consider doing a little more. Exercise has numerous well proven health benefits, from being good for your heart and vascular system, to also being protective against cancer. Not only does it help to make you feel better, look better, but it is great for your health!
If running, then some good footwear is important, again some bright gear to ensure others can see you.. For both running and cycling, sun cream and sun protection are also worth remembering.
Have fun, it is probably the most important aspect of it all… It can be difficult to keep those sessions up initially, but when you miss your run or cycle, you know you’ve made it! It’s all about improving lifestyle, it’s not about a fad for a few weeks or months.. And, it is going to help the success of any diets that you might choose … increased levels of exercise means increased metabolism, burning those calories…
It’s win, win all the way… hope we see you out there!

Hot Doc – Online Appointments System
We have now got a comprehensive online appointment system. This system offers more comprehensive and current practice information and will help patients to book an appointment from the convenience of their home computer, tablet or smart phone. As we get more familiar with the new system, we will also be able to use it for medical reminders and recalls, to help us ensure that you are up to date with all of your health needs.
Please check out the Hot Doc Help section of their website here

You can now book appointments online. With greater use of eHealth in general practice, this will be an exciting addition to the services that we can offer at the practice.
