Get a free HNS health check as Luton Council teams up with Total Wellbeing Luton to run pop-up clinics throughout September.

Luton people aged between 40 and 74 without pre-existing health conditions can get the free check at a Total Wellbeing Luton pop-up clinic, or from their GP. These take around 20-30 minutes and involve measuring height, weight, blood pressure, pulse and a finger-prick cholesterol test. People will also be asked some questions about lifestyle factors, such as smoking and drinking, which can have an impact on their health. Signposting to local services will also be available, such as stop smoking or healthy weight services from Total Wellbeing Luton.

The pop-up clinics will take place on:

Councillor Khtija Malik, portfolio holder for public health, said: “Those aged 40 to 74 are at a significantly higher risk of stroke, heart disease and diabetes, so it’s important now more than ever to get an NHS health check. NHS health checks are a fast, easy and free way to get a clear picture of your current health. You’ll get the results while at the clinic, meaning you can discuss next steps with the healthcare professional to see how you can live a healthier life. These pop-up clinics can be the first step towards becoming a healthier, happier version of yourself, so please try and come down if you can.”
