Everyone Health: On-site NHS Health Checks for staff
are working with businesses across Staffordshire to ensure that employees can receive their free NHS Health Check
NHS Health Checks are available to people aged 40-74, who do not have a pre-existing condition. They should be done every five years.
Interested businesses with a high proportion of employees over 40, can contact Everyone Health to arrange an on-site NHS Health Check Day for staff. The check involves a blood pressure check and BMI calculation, as well as a finger prick blood test for high cholesterol. The full NHS Health Check takes around 30 minutes to complete.
Everyone Health provide an appointment schedule before the day, allowing employees to book a specific time slot. This helps to minimise disruption to the working day. All staff receive a record of their results, as well as tailored lifestyle advice in line with their readings.
For members of staff who do not meet the eligibility criteria, including those who live outside of Staffordshire, Everyone Health can provide a mini ‘Health MOT’. This includes a blood pressure check, BMI calculation and tailored lifestyle advice.
Everyone Health has worked with several large businesses across Staffordshire, including: Florette, Hobbycraft Distribution, Capita, Holland and Barrett, Drayton Manor, Alton Towers and Pentalver. Hannah Burgess, HR Manager at Drayton Manor said, “We were really pleased with the uptake of employees wanting to have a health check carried out and feel that the event was a real success. We had lots of positive feedback”.
