Lakeside Village is offering shoppers aged between 40 to 74 years old a FREE NHS health check* today and on April 27 between 10am and 2pm.

Provided by NHS Doncaster the instant results test shoppers for:

• Cholesterol

• Blood glucose

• Cardiovascular risk score

Last year 4,200 local people attended the free NHS checks, with many of these tests revealing a range of hidden illnesses that can lie undetected for years. These tests potentially save lives, making a quick visit to Test your Health at Lakeside Village an essential action for any shopper this month.

Cheryl Sadler, Centre Manager said: “We are really pleased with the numbers of shoppers and staff who have come forward for the checks so far and we invite even more to attend the days in April. These really are essential checks for anyone aged 40-74 years old, so we urge people not to hesitate and pop down for a visit that could potentially save your life”.

* To qualify for your health check you must be registered with a Doncaster GP or live in Doncaster. People whom are being treated for high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, high cholesterol,stroke or heart disease are excluded from the tests.
