Well Checks

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and being aware of risk factors to your health, and knowing the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and stroke, will help to prevent chest, heart and stroke conditions, as well as reducing the risks associated with Coronavirus. To support people across Northern Ireland we have a variety of options of face-to-face health checks available. 

Our Health Checks are regularly updated in line with research and clinical guidelines and are carried out by our compassionate and professional staff who deliver a personal and confidential service. Appropriate safety protocols, PPE and cleaning procedures are in place in-line with COVID-19 regulations.

Face-to-Face Well Checks

Our 'Well Check' is a comprehensive cardiovascular health check that can detect the early warning signs and hidden risk factors associated with avoidable chest, heart and stroke illnesses.

NICHS is the only local charity in Northern Ireland that offers a health check for Atrial Fibrillation (irregular heartbeat), Blood Pressure and Cholesterol and much more.

    • By living a healthy and active lifestyle you can reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke and help keep your blood pressure and cholesterol at healthy levels. Undiagnosed high blood pressure, increases your risk of a heart attack or stroke.

      As Seamus discovered, sometimes high blood pressure has no warning signs which it is why is crucial that people know their numbers.

      Seamus says;

      I was completely unaware of this (high blood pressure) and I am very grateful to the NICHS Well Check for picking up this problem. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved.

      Hundreds of people like Seamus are uncovering hidden risk factors – don’t delay, a health check can prevent illness and save lives.

      The best way to protect yourself is to get your health checked at least once a year. Our Well Check may identify risk factors that could cause heart disease or stroke, so people can act and control of their own health.

    • “I was extremely well looked after. All my concerns were addressed, and everything was explained in detail. Very happy with the service and not only will I be back in the future but will definitely recommend your service to family and friends.”

      “Fantastic service. Great opportunity to gain an evidence-based insight into my heart and general health, through a supportive and friendly conversation. Thanks to the NICHS staff for their professional and kind manner.”
