Healthy Blaenavon recognises that it’s not always easy to take care of your physical health. We know that we should eat healthy food, take regular exercise and avoid things that are bad for us, but it’s not always easy to do. We’ve listed below some local opportunities to support you to improve or maintain your physical health. If you’d like a conversation around how you might access more support, please contact our Healthy Blaenavon Officer.
Managing health conditions
Blaenavon Medical Practice
Blaenavon Medical Practice are an award winning practice committed to supporting their patients in line with the principles of Healthy Blaenavon.
But did you know that you can directly access other health care services and support for condition management without the need to see a GP?
The Eye Care Wales scheme supports free assessment and diagnosis of eye conditions by local opticians for a range of conditions which would otherwise have been seen by a GP or hospital eye service. If you have an eye problem that needs urgent attention contact your local optician or if out of hours ring 111. Opticians/Optometrists have specialised equipment that enable better inspection than is possible within GP settings. They can also refer direct to hospital specialists.
