What are your New Year’s Resolutions?

Each January, many health and wellness resolutions are made. Big goals are set like losing weight, exercise more, quit smoking, eat healthy and taking better care of your health.  The problem with broad goals is simply that – they are too difficult to achieve.  Setting more specific resolutions have a better chance of success.

Collie River Valley Medical Centre offers a wide range of services that may help you achieve this.  A GP can counsel on a range of health subjects including how to quit smoking, weight loss or be able to advise you of other health professionals that could guide you on achieving your goals.  We also offer a range of preventative health clinics including skin cancer checks, hearing tests, health assessments, diabetes education, asthma monitoring, cancer screening and coordinated management plans.  There are regular allied health visits by an audiologist from ACCB Hearing, counsellors (Integrity Counselling and SJOG Drug and Alcohol Counselling) and exercise physiologists (injury and weight loss).

Set your resolutions, book an appointment (9734 4111) to discuss any health goals with your GP and put the plan into action. Have a very Happy and Healthy 2022!
