The NICHS Public Well Check is a health check for local people living in Northern Ireland who are 45 years and over that will help detect, prevent and delay the onset of avoidable chest, heart and stroke conditions.
Cardiovascular disease such as heart disease and stroke can happen to anyone at any time, but they are most common in people over 45 years because our arteries naturally become narrower and harder as we grow older.
Leading a healthy lifestyle and having regular health checks can help prevent the onset of having high blood pressure, a heart attack or stroke.
We are therefore rolling out our public Well Checks across Northern Ireland for local people who are 45 years or over. Terms and conditions apply below. As a charity, it costs us £25 to provide your heath check. So, any donation you can give us to help cover the costs would be very much appreciated.
Check out the list below to see where our next Well Checks are. Use the booking form on the right to select a date and location.
If you are under 45 years and are concerned about your health or you wish to arrange Health Checks for a workplace or a group, then do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 028 9032 0184 to arrange Health Checks for over 18s in local businesses, schools, sports centres or other locations.

As Seamus discovered, sometimes high blood pressure has no warning signs which it is why is crucial that people know their numbers.
"I was completely unaware of this (high blood pressure) and I am very grateful to the NICHS Well Check for picking up this problem. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved."
