Free Check4Life Health Checks for employees!

Why not hold a Check4Life Health at Work Day within your organisation?

This is a free NHS service, unique to County Durham, which may be beneficial to your workplace.

A Check4Life Health Check assesses an individual’s risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and Type 2 diabetes. This is available to anyone over the age of 25 and consists of a 30 minute appointment. The appointment involves the measurement, evaluation and a personalised report of:

  • Height, Weight and BMI
  • Blood Pressure and Pulse
  • Waist Measurement
  • Diabetes Risk Score
  • Cholesterol (if eligible)
  • Cardiovascular Disease Risk Score and Heart Age (if eligible)

All staff attending will be offered personalised advice on simple lifestyle changes that can make a huge difference, such as diet and exercise, drinking within recommended guidelines and quitting smoking.

Inviting the Check4Life team into your workplace is an excellent way to engage with and contribute to the health and wellbeing of your staff. Employees working for organisations that promote health and wellbeing in the workplace are more likely to be engaged, and think positively of their employers.

Workplaces who invest in their employees’ health and wellbeing can also expect to see increased productivity and reduced absenteeism as well as many other benefits.
