Stop cellulitis in its tracks
Skin infections can lead to a serious condition called cellulitis. It is important to try to prevent skin infections from happening, and to know what to do when you or a family member does have a skin infection. A prompt visit to your GP will lead to a diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Visit our Skin Infections page to find out more.
Sore throats can lead to rheumatic fever
Sometimes a sore throat will be caused by the streptococcus bug that causes rheumatic fever. If left untreated, a "strep" throat can lead to permanent damage to a child's heart valves. Make sure your child sees a GP for that sore throat. Visit our Rheumatic Fever page to find out more and download our Rheumatic Fever brochure, in five different languages.

Dressing to promote good health
Staff at East Tamaki Healthcare (ETHC) general practices will be donning wigs, wings, hula skirts and decorating clinics in a bid to encourage their patients to take more notice of improving their health.
During April, all ETHC clinics will be taking part in a drive to ensure enrolled patients are having the free health screening to which they are entitled:
• For children: vaccinations up-to-date for their age and oral health check
• For men: diabetes, cardiovascular risk assessment (diabetes and heart checks) and, if eligible, influenza vaccination
• For women: diabetes checks, cervical smear, mammogram, cardiovascular risk assessment and influenza vaccination (if eligible)
Read more about the 5,3 and 2 point checks available for ETHC patients during April.
