Description of Service
Hospitals take an holistic approach to patient care, looking at prevention as well as treatment.
Health promotion in our hospital focuses on four areas;
- promoting the health of patients
- promoting the health of staff
- changing the organisation to a health promoting setting
- promoting the health of the community in the catchment area of the hospital
The hospital has two main approaches;
Health education through the provision of both verbal and written information to enable people to make an informed choice about their health and lifestyle choices.
Working with patients to identify their health needs and the resources and supports required to improve their health.
