NHS Ayrshire & Arran’s Health Promotion team has joined forces with North Ayrshire Council’s Consumer Advice Shop to promote a new initiative - Health, Employment, Lifestyle and Prevention (HELP).
Members of the public recently received a free health check at a promotional event held in the Council’s Community Advice Shop at the Bridgegate in Irvine. Fullarton Wheelers, a local cycling club, took along their TACX Virtual Reality Turbo Trainer to encourage people to take up cycling and give them a taste of what it is like to ride a road bike.
The sessions cover different topics each week and range from advice on healthy eating to money matters, to advice on sexual health. Eye examinations and health checks are also available.
Anyone interested in the HELP health check sessions is encouraged to pop into the North Ayrshire Council Trading Standards office at the Bridgegate – between Irvine Cross and the Rivergate Shopping Mall - on Wednesdays.
