Part A :
Can I help you?
Yes, I've just moved to this area with my wife and children and I'd like to know where we can all register with a doctor at a Health Center.
Well. There's doctor Green at the Harvey Clinic.
We always will recommend her for babies, because she is very good with them and she runs a special clinic.
Oh... actually my youngest child is five, so that wouldn't be any good for us.
Is there anywhere else I could try?
Yes, the Eshcol Health Practice is the next one on my list.
How do you spell that?
E-s-h-c-o-l, And it's doctor Fuller, who has space on his list.
The clinic only opened a year ago, so the facilities are all very modern.
That sounds good.
And it's particularly good if you are busy during the day, because they also do the appointments in the evening.
They closed on Saturday, though.
The only other place on the list is the Health Center on Shore Lane.
You can register with doctor Gormley, that's G-o-r-m-l-e-y.
He is new there, but the center has very good reputation.
Oh, yes, I think I know the road.
That would be the best one.
Could you tell me, will all their services be free?
Erm...there are usually some small charges that doctors make.
Let me see what it says about the Shore Lane Center.
If you need to be vaccinated before any trips abroad, you won't have to pay for this.
Ah, what else?
The sports injury treatment service operates on the paying basis, as does the nutritional therapy service.
Some health centers do offer alternative therapies like homeopathy as part of their pay-to-use service.
Shore Lane are hoping to do this soon.
I think they may start with acupuncture.
And finally, if you need to prove you're healthy or haven't had any serious injuries before a new employer will accept you, you can get a free fitness check-up there, but you'd most likely have to pay for insurance medicals though.
Part B :
You might be also interested to know the Center is running a pilot scheme talks with patients.
I've got the list here. Actually, they look very interesting.
What sort of things?
Well, the first one is about giving up smoking.
It's next week, the 25th of February, at 7 pm, and that's in Room 4.
It says, the talk will stress the health benefits, particular for people with asthma or heart disease.
That sounds very interesting.
There's also a talk about families with children. It's on Healthy Eating, and takes place at the first of March, at 5 o'clock.
Will that be at the Health Center?
Erm, actually it's the primary school on Shore Lane.
I imagine they're inviting parents of pupils there-and it says here "all welcome".
Mmm,I might go to that if I have time.
There's a couple of other talks-one giving advice about how to avoid injuries while doing exercise.
It's on the 9th of March.
It's a late afternoon talk at 4.30, and it will be in Room 6.
It also says the talk is suitable for all ages.
And finally, there is a talk called "Stress Management", which is...
