People are invited to free health checks being held across Crawley.

The 30-minute check-ups are for people aged 40 to 74 and will focus on preventing major causes of illness such as heart disease and diabetes.

NHS health advisors will run the sessions in Bewbush, Crawley Civic Hall and Crawley Baptist Church from Monday (January 13).

The check-ups are confidential and include a blood pressure check, cholesterol test, a discussion about family history and assessment of lifestyle factors, such as smoking and exercise levels.

They are for people without an existing condition (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or kidney disease) and must be booked in advance.

To book, call Crawley Wellbeing on 01293 585317 and for more about the Prevention Assessment Teams and health checks visit
