The Halton BID Team recently partnered with the Halton Health Improvement Team who are part of Halton Borough Council to offer FREE 45-minute NHS Health Checks to all eligible staff based on both Astmoor and Halebank.

We are pleased to say that the health checks have been well received by both estates with all appointments taken within a couple of days of releasing the booking link.

The health checks looked at height, weight, BMI, blood pressure and involved a finger prick blood test to check for cholesterol and diabetes.

The purpose of the checks was to assess the risk of developing raised cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease and their fully qualified health trainers provided the necessary lifestyle advice and support to prevent the onset of such conditions.

We would like to say a BIG thank you to Sandra from Huktra (Halebank) and Carolyn from Highwood Consultants (Astmoor) who kindly offered to the host the events.
