On Thursday 15th September, we have Ashley from Newcastle United FC in school performing free health checks.

The health checks are designed to assess your risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and stroke. Each check takes around 20 minutes and you will be asked simple questions about your lifestyle, have your blood pressure taken and your cholesterol checked. After the check Ashley will give you your results and share some tips on healthy living. To be eligible for the checks you must be between the ages of 40 and 74 and not be diagnosed with any of the mentioned conditions.

These checks will operate on a ‘drop in’ basis and will run from 11am

If you would like to take advantage of this please just turn up on the day, Ashley will be here until 2pm.
