Maximise Your Health & Wellbeing
Life is busy, life is stressful and life changes! Change in physical health, mental health, hormonal changes, family and friends, work, moving home, bereavement, reitrement, can all lead to an altered sense of wellbeing, and often unexpectedly. Sometimes this is in a positive way but more often it can be incredibly challenging.
All different aspects of your life can play a really important role in optimising your health and wellbeing. The good news is that no matter your genetic make up, your starting point or where you currently find yourself, addressing these factors in even a small way can improve your physical, mental and general wellbeing regardless of any medical diagnoses. In some cases, these holistic changes can completely reverse a diagnosis or resolve symptoms, either alongside or sometimes without medications.
We have pages on cancer screening and other screening programmes including NHS Health Checks. NHS Health Checks are an important way to pick up problems early so they can be addressed.
Hopefully these pages will help you navigate the information you need. If you are unsure or would like more support, your GP surgery reception team can help signpost you to the right person to team to help you.
We ARE The New Forest! Places to explore...
We are lucky to live in a beautiful part of the country with lots of wonderful walking, running and cycling routes available on both the coast and in the New Forest.
We have started to put together a list of local recommended routes which you can find here.
Also check out our Public Benches Map which also shows the location of car parks and public toilets within our network boundary.
