Free health checks offered to York City fans & York residents

5th March 2013

Benenden health is teaming up with York City FC and Nuffield Health York Hospital to offer free health checks to York residents and especially City fans.

The free comprehensive checks will provide an overall insight into their health and wellbeing – including tests on BMI, blood pressure, cholesterol levels and heart checks. The checks will take approximately 20 minutes.

Health checks will be running on Friday 15th March between 10am and 3pm at Nuffield Health York Hospital and on Saturday 16th March at York City FC grounds from 12.30 until 3pm. Fans who are attending the home match against Port Vale are invited to attend the health checks before the game starts.

Limited spaces are available and pre-booking a slot is essential – details below.

The checks will be carried out by practitioners from the Nuffield Health York Hospital, a charity which is the largest not for profit provider of healthcare in the UK, who currently treat the York-based mutual healthcare provider benenden health’s members.

Lawrence Christensen, Marketing Director at benenden health said ‘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’ve therefore partnered up with Nuffield Health York Hospital to offer this free health check which is available to fans and also to the general public.

‘We believe this is a great initiative which offers an excellent opportunity for people to get a free insight into their health. This in turn we hope will help them to be aware of any issues and look at the steps they need to take to maintain or improve their health.’    

Paula Stainton, York City in the Community Manager, said ‘We are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to fans and members of the local community, through our association with benenden health as our Community Wellbeing partners.”

Matthew Lamb, Hospital Director at Nuffield Health York Hospital said “We are proud to support this initiative, alongside benenden healthcare and York City FC. This initiative enables us to use our expertise to put something extra back into the community. I’d encourage anyone with an interest in their health to take a few minutes out of their day to come and have this free health check”

Pre-booking a slot for a health check is essential – please email community@benenden.co.uk or call 08004148225 in order to book your health check or to receive further information.
