Understanding your risk of developing health problems is a first step toward good health.
Maintaining good physical and mental health, a well-balanced diet and an active body will ensure you stay healthy and well. Regular physical checks, routine health screening tests and vaccinations help to keep you in shape. They can help ensure that common, serious health concerns and conditions like diabetes, cancer, or heart disease are detected and treated early. During check-ups, your health care providers can also suggest ways to make lifestyle changes to stay healthy and prevent future health problems.
A useful website containing information about a range of conditions is HealthInfo.
Doctors on Riccarton actively supports immunisations as a way of getting a healthy start to life for children and to protect the community from recurring epidemics. We offer the full range of recommended fully funded vaccinations on the New Zealand National Immunisation Schedule and most non-funded vaccinations.
