Free Heart Screening for all 18-39 year olds.
In conjunction with the Tim Cogley Cardiac Screening Foundation, the Randox Health mobile unit will be here at the Club on Tuesday 30th November to offer free cardiac screening to all members aged between 18 and 39.
The Foundation invites all young men and women aged 18 – 39 to participate in an initiative aiming to address a gap in existing routine health services.
For 18 – 24 year olds, the emphasis will be on raising health awareness and equipping young people with practical ways to manage their own health most effectively.
For 25 – 39 year olds, the screening programme is designed to estimate likely cardiovascular risk over a 10 year period thereby maximising the opportunity for early intervention as part of a balanced and happy lifestyle!
As Tim’s Father, Frank explains, ‘Tim’s life may have been saved if there had been a systematic screening of his age group, a group currently and sadly outside the regular coverage of those responsible for offering preventative medical care.
I have spent my life working with and for young people and we are determined to achieve something positive for them by offering their families a genuine chance of avoiding our family’s tragedy and heartache.’
Spaces on the unit are restricted to 16 per day.
