Free NHS Health Checks at Edlington Community Centre07/03/18
We will be at Edlington Community Centre where our staff will be on hand to offer FREE NHS HEALTH CHECKS.
Once you reach the age of 40, and if you are not already receiving treatment of the diseases we are screening for, and as long as you are not taking medication for high blood pressure or statins for control of cholesterol, you are eligible for the NHS Health Check every 5 years until you reach the age of 74. We are working with Doncaster GP practices who’s patients are being called randomly to attend for their Health Check. If you want to receive yours before your invitation arrives, call in at one of our sessions where you can be seen without an appointment.
This check is to assess your risk of developing Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Stroke and Dementia.
We take a few measurements, ask some questions about your lifestyle and family history, we take your blood pressure and a simple finger prick test to check your cholesterol levels to enable us to calculate your risk. We then offer you some simple steps and lifestyle changes to enable you to reduce your risk of developing these diseases.
Eligibility applies – please check on our website for more information
