Free NHS Health Checks for Bernselai Homes Staff09/11/18
Free NHS Health Checks for staff at Berneslai Homes
We will be at the Town Hall in Barnsley where our Healthcare Assistants will be delivering 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.
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
