  • 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.”

    “First class assessment, all the tests carried out were explained in detail but more importantly how the results are interpreted and any remedial action that needs to be taken.”

    • All clients are required to sign a consent form before availing of our health checks.
    • All information discussed, disclosed and assessed during the health check is treat confidentially and stored in line with general data protection regulations.
