Keeping Well Unit at Cloverhill Golf Club on May 21st

May 3, 2016

Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is bringing its Keeping Well mobile unit to Cloverhill Golf Club this May. As part of a fundraising day, all participants at the club on the day and any locals are being encouraged to hop onboard to have their health checked out for free at the club on 21st May from 10:30 am until 4pm.

The Cancer Focus Northern Ireland Keeping Well van is a mobile drop-in unit which delivers health checks and cancer awareness sessions directly to workplaces, sports and community groups across Northern Ireland.

Gerry McElwee, Head of Cancer Prevention at Cancer Focus added: “The resources available on our Keeping Well vans will help empower local people to take control of their own health and lower their risk of cancer.  The sessions we offer are interactive, positive and designed so that participants see how they can proactively adopt a healthier lifestyle, step by step.  And by offering these services onboard a mobile unit that can travel to a community’s doorstep, we are able to reach out to even more people.”

The health checks available onboard include blood pressure, pulse, blood sugar, carbon monoxide monitoring for smokers and a body composition analysis.  The health awareness sessions are delivered on a one-to-one basis. They offer advice on improving health and provide information on the early signs and symptoms of various cancers.

Appointments will take approximately 30 minutes. To book an appointment contact Brendan Headley on 07793 818 132.
