You and your family's health

It is important to look after your own health and the health of your family.

You and your family's health
  • Simple, healthy decisions can prevent a lot of illness and hospital stays.
  • Many health issues can be prevented or are easier to deal with if they are caught early. Act quickly on signs of ill health.
  • Build good habits into your daily routines, so it doesn’t become a big deal.
  • Healthy choices can also be fun and enjoyable – share exercise time with friends or family, start with small steps, get advice and support for the bigger decisions.
  • Keep your vaccinations and children’s immunisations up to date.
  • Be alert to the risks of accidents and falls.

If things are not right, don’t put it off – make an appointment with your GP or call the free Healthline 0800 611 116 for advice, any time, day or night.

  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask for help.

Be well informed
