The Reduce your risk of… series covers how you can reduce the risk associated with a number of common conditions which includes medical conditions but also events such as falls and accidents.
The ingredients of this series include the healthy living approach suggested above, but there are some important additional ideas. So, for example under stroke you will find how learning a very simple technique can help to reduce the risk of having a certain type of stroke. There is information on how your home can be made safer to reduce your chance of a fall or accident. Steps that can be taken to prevent 4 out of every 10 cancers ever occurring are covered.
All of this can mostly be achieved either in your home environment or with local support you can access without you needing to attend your GP practice.
