Stowmarket Town Council is pleased to support OneLife Suffolk in its provision of free NHS Health Checks at Milton House in July, August and September 2018
What is an NHS Health Check?
The NHS Health Check is a national screening programme, screening people for their risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The NHS Health Check is a bit like a mid-life MOT to assess risk of developing potential health problems and to highlight health concerns before they impact on quality of life.
A range of routine health tests form part of the NHS Health Check and the results will give you a clearer picture of your health and your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. One Life Suffolk provide free 30 minute individual health advice and screening appointments on a date to suit you.
