Polmed Health Days- Smithfield.

About 100 members of Smithfield Cluster Stations attended the Polmed Health Week at Smithfield Town Hall over two days on the 14 and 15 March 2016.

Polmed in partnership with Employee Health and Wellness Unit (EHW) of SAPS have organised health days to motivate members to take responsibility for their health and to meet all service providers on their doorstep. The services are free for all Polmed medical aid members and their dependants.

Among the services rendered over the two days were testing of sugar diabetes, high blood pressure, HIV Aids, cholesterol and general mouth/ teeth cleaning.

Peer educators gave out pamphlets with information on chronic diseases like sugar diabetes, high blood pressure, Hiv Aids. There were also pamphlets on drugs and other intoxicating substances that impact negatively on human health.  

Free State Provincial EHW can be contacted on 051 406 5823.
