Everyone Health Checks in Wisbech Market Place

Everyone Health Checks in Wisbech Market Place

Wed, 18 Mar 2020 09:30

NHS Health Checks with Everyone Health

As part of the services we provide, all eligible service users will be given the opportunity to have an NHS Health Check, a simple procedure that gives excellent insight into the future health risks of service users in your area.

Who needs an NHS Health Check?

Offered to all Adults in England between the age of 40 and 74, the Health Check measures a number of different variables, assessing the service user's chances of developing certain conditions such as dementia, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

Age is one of the biggest reasons behind the risks of service users developing these ailments goes up. As well as advancing years, however, there are several other factors that can increase a service user's chances of suffering from any or all (developing one significantly increase the risks of getting another) of these maladies.

NHS Health Check weight

What does an NHS Health Check achieve?

Potential risk factors include being overweight, eating unhealthily, smoking, pursuing an inactive lifestyle, drinking too much alcohol, as well as having high blood pressure and cholesterol. By having an NHS health check, this means early signs of these conditions are more likely to be caught and the above risk factors can be mitigated and brought to heel earlier, reducing the risks of service users developing some life-threatening conditions in the future.

NHS Health Check blood pressure

What does an NHS Health Check involve?

The health check itself is a fairly simple procedure, lasting for between 20 and 30 minutes. It involves the service user answering certain questions, having their cholesterol and blood pressure checked, alongside recording their height, weight, gender and ethnicity.

What happens next?

Service users will be told precisely what their results mean and, if necessary, they will be asked to return at a later date. Service users with slightly raised blood pressure may have to have their kidneys tested via a further blood test, while another blood test may be required to check for type 2 diabetes.

Once all the checks have been carried out, service users may well be prescribed a course of treatment or medication in order to help prevent or reduce the risks of that person suffering from any of these serious conditions in later life.

The Little Prince at The Maltings, Ely

The Little Prince at The Maltings, Ely

Join the Little Prince as he journeys through a weird and wonderful universe, coming face to face with the baffling world of grown-ups whilst learning about the value of friendship and love.

Based on the world-famous story by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince is brought to life using Luca Silvestrini's Protein award winning mix of dance, humour and spoken word. As part of the Leap into Dance programme. Adapted and directed by Luca Silvestrini.

Originally co-commissioned by The Place and DanceEast. Supported by The Point, Eastleigh, Warwick Arts Centre and Dance City, this is the adapted version for rural touring in 2020. Aimed at ages 5+.

To view the Little Prince trailer, please click here.

⭐⭐⭐⭐"St-Exupéry's enigmatic tale [...] delivered with quirky charm. Prendergast is touchingly excellent in the title role" The Observer
⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Charming, imaginative and playful" The Stage

Share this special show with your mum, grandma or aunty on Mother's Day!
