Last Thursday I represented Peninsula Community Health at the opening event to celebrate local health services moving into the new £2m Penntorr Health Centre in Torpoint. The site is just outside the town centre on a bus route, and brings together GPs, Practice Nurses, District Nurses, MSK and therapy, podiatry and other specialist and out-patient services.
You've probably heard the quip: ''If you give up all the vices you don't live longer - it just seems longer!'' Well it ain't true. It never was true. Smoking, excessive drinking and being overweight are major contributors to early death.
