Take the Time to Check Your Health

February 07, 2017


We take the time to buy an outfit for a special occasion, we take the time to line up at our favourite coffee shop, but how often do we put off going to the doctor for a check-up?

February is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late – Bowel Cancer, Heart Research, and International Childhood Hearth Disease Awareness Month.

In other words, February is a month for everyone to stop and take stock of their health.

"We all live in such a fast paced world and it’s easy to overlook the signs that could be signalling an issue with our health."

"I know I have been guilty of putting off going to the doctor because I’ve been too busy, but it isn’t until you experience a health scare that you realise just how important your health is."

"So take the time to start off the year with a visit to your GP for an annual check-up, put your mind at ease and make 2017 a happy and healthy year," Chris said.
