Free health checks offered to York City fans & York residents!
4th September 2013
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 - as part of the activities at the next annual York City Family Fun Day.
The free checks will provide an overall insight into an individual’s health and wellbeing – including tests on BMI, blood pressure, lung capacity and also cholesterol level checks and heart checks which are available at Nuffield Health York Hospital. The checks will take approximately 25 minutes.
Anyone can register for a free health check that will be running throughout the day at the Family Fun Day event at Bootham Crescent on Sunday 22nd September between 11am and 3pm. Alternatively individuals can go along to the Nuffield Health York Hospital on Friday 4th October between 9am and 12pm to get their free health check-up.
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 “The importance of preventive health screenings cannot be underestimated and as sponsors of York City FC and York City in the Community, we wanted to help fans to get that extra peace of mind on their health.
“We are partnering with Nuffield Health York Hospital to offer this free health check which is available both to fans and to the general public. The York City Family Fun Day is a great family event and an opportunity people to come along, enjoy the activities of the day, and also get a free insight into the state of their health.”
Paula Stainton, York City in the Community Manager “We are extremely grateful to Nuffield Health for working with benenden health to offer this service again as we are committed to promoting healthy living and lifestyles to fans of all ages.”
