Swindon to get free health checks
NHS Swindon and Swindon Borough Council are launching free health checks across the area in a bid to save 650 lives a year and prevent people developing long-term health problems.
The aims of the checks are to:
- Save 650 lives a year
- Prevent 1,600 strokes and heart attacks
- Prevent 4,000 people developing diabetes
- Detect 20,000 cases of diabetes and kidney disease earlier
It's estimated that preventing long-term health problems could save NHS Swindon thousands of pounds each year as well. Illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure and kidney disease can often be prevented through simple lifestyle changes.
The health checks will be on-going now through the rest of the year across the town and are aimed at people aged between 40-74 with no previous history of high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease or stroke. This means more than 50,000 people in Swindon will be entitled to a check over.
All checks are open from 10am til 4pm ...
