ARE STATINS SAFE?

Here is an interesting article which will be relevant to most people with Type 2,

or are over 50 years of age. Read it HERE

Flu. I’m Ready for You!

Flu is coming and it can hit you hard. So don’t risk it. The best defence against flu is this year’s vaccine. The vaccine is safe and effective and is available from October to March every year. The sooner you get protected from flu, the better. The more people immunised, the less likely flu is to spread.

If you’ve got a health condition like diabetes, COPD, asthma, liver disease or heart disease, you are more at risk of serious complications from flu. Get your free vaccine by making an appointment with your GP today.
