General/Family Medicine and Nursing

General and Family Medicine plays a crucial role in the prevention of illness and promotion of health and well-being of EVERYONE. General and Family Medicine is a specialty dedicated to the provision of primary health care consisting of comprehensive medical interaction throughout our lifetime, centred on the individual circumstances of their familial, professional, social and cultural lifestyles.
The importance of a global and consistent approach to health issues, related to the specific characteristics of each person, is reflected in the role of the general physician. In effect the general physician should be the binding link between the patient and the health care network they may require. In this context, and reflecting in the project conceived by Luzdoc, the Family Medicine Department allows for direct access to all other available health care professionals in the Luzdoc network, as well as other health care providers that may be deemed necessary, providing for all clients who want personalised care, along with technical competence of reference.

Occupational Health

Personal and professional achievement relies on quality of life in the workplace, especially when supported by Safety, Hygiene and Health services, a fundamental combination essential for this development. As such the Portuguese legal-constitutional system has assigned very significant emphasis to this matter.
There are innumerous obligations currently facing companies with respect to Security, Hygiene and Health in the workplace. Recognition of the necessity for prevention of illness and accidents in the workplace has led to the adoption of diverse legislative measures, establishing guidelines on behalf of both the companies and their workforces.
In Portugal, the organisation and running of Safety, Hygiene and Health services is regulated by statute 3/2014 of the 28th of January, where the possibility of companies seeking outside services to carry out the development of these areas is considered.
Correct management of Safety, Hygiene and Health in the workplace has been considered as a factor in increased company productivity and consequent competitiveness due to:
– Reduction of workforce absenteeism.
– Reduction of sick leave due to accidents in the workplace.
– Creating a feeling of security and efficiency in the workforce:
– Decreasing payment of fines and other taxes arising from non-compliance of the various legal obligations.
– Reduction of paid insurance premiums in the area of labor insurance.
The employer should promote the carrying out of adequate health exams proving and evaluating the aptitude of the work force in performing professional activities.
The following exams should be carried out:
Employment exams – carried out before the worker is employed or within the first 15 days in the case of urgent employment.
Periodic exams: annual ( for minors and workers > 50 years of age ) and every two years (for workers with >18 and < 50 years of age); Occasional exams carried out when there are substantial alterations of the material components of the workplace or returning to work after an absence of more than 30 days due to sickness or accident.

Hypertension Control

Blood pressure is never constant and depends on many internal and external factors such as age, weight, stress and even time of day.

Regardless of whether you are on treatment or not it is vital to monitor and control blood pressure regularly to prevent this damage.
