Pick up health check in Doncaster shops

Have your say

FREE medical checks at a shopping centre have highlighted health problems in Doncaster residents.

More than 500 people have used the quintile nurse team service at Lakeside Village in 2012.

Of those, 78 were referred to GPs for blood pressure monitoring – including one man urgently – 102 displayed high cardiovascular disease or high cholesterol risk and four were diagnosed with diabetes.

The service, commissioned by NHS Doncaster, continues next year.
