Lifestyle Advice


We are keen to give all our patients who smoke as much help as possible to stop. All stopping smoking treatments are now run through Stop Smoking Wales, which is part of the NHS in Wales and free to attend.

Please ask at reception or at any consultation for information and support. Alternatively, look at their dedicated website.


Even the smallest effort can improve your quality of life and make you feel healthier and livelier. As walking is a very good exercise (that most people can do and doesn’t need special equipment) why not get started on your fitness campaign today! Simply start by walking for 15 or 20 minutes three times a week (at a brisk enough pace to get your heart beating faster). When you can easily walk for an hour you are ready to move on to swimming, cycling or running!

Healthy Eating

A healthy diet doesn’t need to be a boring one. Health experts tell us we are all eating too much fat, salt etc, but what exactly does this mean? Why not speak to your doctor/nurse or pick up some of our information leaflets so you can enjoy a healthier diet?

(In a nutshell it means eating plenty of fresh fruit & veg, with lots of fish; and avoiding ready meals or convenience foods since they contain lots of sugar, fat and salt.)


As a general rule men should consume no more than 21 units of alcohol per week and women no more than 14 units of alcohol per week (this may need to be reduced in the elderly or those on certain medications/conditions).

Visit the Alcohol units calculator to find out how much you are drinking.
