Health & Wellbeing Road Shows

How healthy are you? To find out, take note that Bedford Borough Council, in partnership with NHS Bedfordshire, will be hosting a series of Health and Wellbeing Road Shows to be held at various locations across the borough until July.


The road shows are scheduled in the early evenings to enable as many people as possible to pop along and take advantage of the free health checks on offer and get information on how to be healthier. 

Open to everyone, although the health checks are open to those specifically aged 40 - 74, these road shows could make your whole family healthier – whether individuals are looking for information on local health and social care, advice and support to make a life change or even if people would just like to reassure themselves that they are healthy!


The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “The health checks will help to identify risks such as developing heart disease, strokes, diabetes and kidney disease. We want to supply people with the information needed for them to live as long and as healthy a life as possible.”


Muriel Scott, NHS Bedfordshire Director of Public Health, said: “Through our health checks we can support people to make the lifestyle changes needed to reduce these risks and to lead healthier lifestyles.”

To book a health check in advance, contact Horizon Health on 01234 897501 and quote the date and venue of your choosing (listed below) and your name and telephone number.
