Free Health Checks in Bridlington

Bridlington residents are being encouraged to take up the offer of a free NHS health check

People aged 40 to 74 years can get a blood pressure check and cholesterol check, as well as guidance on their general lifestyle choices that may put them at risk of heart disease either now or in the future.

The East Riding Healthtrainers team are encouraging people between the ages of 40 and 74, who are not currently diagnosed with a long term health condition, to book their places. 

The health check can also tell whether a participant has a higher risk of experiencing other health problems such as diabetes, kidney disease, and stroke. Health check participants over the age of 65 will also be informed of the signs and symptoms of dementia that they can look out for.

Healthtrainers Service Manager, Natalie Belt said

"As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease or Type
2 diabetes. Your free NHS Health Check can spot early signs and help prevent these happening to you which means you'll be more likely to enjoy life for longer".

The health checks are available 6 days a week and you can book your place by contacting Healthtrainers on 0800 9177752, or by emailing HNF-TR.healthtrainers@nhs.net.
