Free health checks offered to York City fans and residents
29th January 2014
Benenden health will be teaming up with York City in the Community and the Nuffield Health York Hospital to offer free health checks to York City fans and residents.
The free comprehensive checks which take approximately 20 minutes will provide an overall insight into an individual’s health and wellbeing – including tests on BMI, blood pressure, lung capacity and heart checks.
Anyone can register for a free health check which will be running on 1st March from 10.30am until 2pm at York City FC grounds. Fans who are attending the home match against Exeter are invited to attend the health checks before the game starts.
Limited spaces are available and pre-booking a slot is essential – details on how to book are given below.
The checks will be carried out by experienced practitioners from the Nuffield Health York Hospital - a charity which is the largest not-for-profit provider of healthcare in the UK and who currently treat Benenden Health’s members in the North Yorkshire area.
Paul Keenan, Head of Communications at benenden health said “Taking time out to have a preventive health screening is hugely important and can really help give individuals an insight into the current state of their health.
“As sponsors of York City FC we wanted to help bring our expertise to fans to help give them added peace of mind on their health. We are therefore partnering with Nuffield Health York Hospital once again to offer this free health check which is available both to fans and to the general public.”
Matthew Lamb, Hospital Director at the Nuffield Health York Hospital said “The partnership between Nuffield Health York Hospital and Benenden Health has been very successful over the last three years and the health checks that were performed at York City FC earlier this year were extremely popular with members of the public.”
Paula Stainton, York City in the Community Development Manager, said "We are delighted to be able to repeat this opportunity for the third time due to its popularity. The checks prior to the match are ideal for anyone who may feel uncomfortable attending at hospital."
