Free health check at hospital open day and fete

Visitors can have a NHS health check when they visit the Open Day and Fete at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) from 11am to 4pm on 20th June 2015.

The check will be completed by an Occupational Health Professional and includes height and weight measurements, blood pressure measurement, lifestyle assessments, gathering information on family medical history and a simple blood test to check cholesterol and/or blood sugar levels if required.

Hilary Winch, Head of Workplace Health, Safety & Wellbeing at NNUH, says: “The NHS Health Check is particularly aimed at those aged between 40 and 74, but we are able to tailor this for those who do not meet this age requirement.

“The Check should take no longer than 20-30 minutes and will provide you with specific health advice if there are indications you are at higher risk of developing a health problem in future.”

Other attractions at the open day include finding out what goes on in an operating theatre, visiting the labs, making a plaster mould of your hand, meeting Fred the Pharmacy robot, taking part in traditional fete games, browsing the cake and craft stalls, listening to live music or taking your teddy for an X-ray before joining Big C’s teddy bears’ picnic.
