Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said : “These NHS Health Checks can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes and dementia. I would urge anybody aged 40-74 who lives in the East Riding ,who has not had an NHS Health Check in the last five years, and has not already been diagnosed with a long-term condition, to make a free appointment.
“We have been running these Health Checks for some time very successfully in East Riding Leisure centres, and I am delighted that we can now offer them in East Riding libraries as well.”
To make a free appointment, contact your local library.
