What our clients say:

South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust choose health checks for their staff provided by Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke because the service is reliable, personable and so accommodating of a busy health service environment. We want to help our Staff to help themselves, so a health check is an opportunity to help identify potential risk factors for future poor health and areas to focus on in order to improve wellbeing. Our employees are our most important asset, so it makes sense to do what can be done to detect illness, where possible, and to promote a healthy lifestyle. Health screening (lifestyle assessment) offers benefits both for the organisation and the individual.
