Receive free NHS health checks

The NHS health trainer service will be promoting dementia awareness throughout this week at all office locations throughout the East Riding as part of Dementia Awareness Week (15-21 May).

Free NHS health checks are offered to people aged between 40 and 74 years. The five-yearly checks are available at some GP practices, pharmacies, council leisure centres and by the health trainers. As well as dementia, the checks will assess a person’s risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease and stroke.
