Dundee Keep Well Community Team are working to provide free health checks.  The health checks are for anyone aged 18 years and over who has unpaid caring responsibilities.

Why are we offering carers health checks?

Taking on a caring role can impact on your own health and we know that carers often find it difficult to make time to focus on their own health needs.

What does the health check involve?

It includes checking :      

  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar / Diabetes check
  • Cholesterol
  • Height, weight and BMI

What else?

There is also an opportunity to discuss wellbeing and social issues that may be impacting on your health, as well as lifestyle issues, such as smoking, diet and alcohol.

The results of the tests will be explained to you and support offered to prevent or reduce health risks.  The nurse can also refer you onto other services for ongoing support if required.
