Happy New Year Everyone!
From myself and the rest of the Wellbeing team, I hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
January is always the month where everyone makes their new year's resolutions and these, more often than not, usually revolve around health and fitness!
Well, did you know that Adur and Worthing Wellbeing Hubs will soon be delivering NHS Health Checks?
NHS Health Check is a national programme in England for people between the ages of 40 and 74. It is a free 30 minute check to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
Everybody is at risk of developing these health problems, but having an NHS Health Check can help you to lower your chance of developing them.
We will be running these Health Checks across Adur and Worthing, so be sure to call our admin team on 01903 221450 to sign up for one!
Before Christmas, Alex Bailey, Adur & Worthing Councils' Chief Executive, undertook his NHS Health Check with one of our advisers and was impressed with the free, friendly and impartial service offered.
Alex said: “I went through the NHS work based health check just before Christmas. I found it helpful, informative, genuinely focused on me and my lifestyle… and quite an eye opener for me in some of the results.”
“I can highly recommend it as an easy way to get good insights into your existing health and well being and what you can do to improve both.”
So what are you waiting for?! Come along for your free health check and start 2020 in the best and healthiest way possible!
