Health bus pulls up in Enfield for two weeks of free blood pressure, diabetes, and weight checks
Free blood pressure, diabetes, and weight checks will be carried out over the next fortnight when a health bus pulls into town.
People aged between 40 and 74 can visit health specialists in Enfield's health bus, in a scheme intended to diagnose diseases as early as possible.
The bus, which is sponsored by Enfield Borough Council, the NHS and pharmaceutical company Pfizer, will stop at Asda in Edmonton Green between 10am and 4pm today until Friday.
Health experts will be on hand to answer people's questions as well as give medical advice.
The mobile clinic will move to Market Place in Enfield Town on Monday and Tuesday before being driven to Ponders End Library in College Court High Street on Wednesday.
On Thursday, the bus will move to Palmers Green Library in Broomfield Lane before finishing by Ridge Avenue Library in Church Street on Friday.
Dr Shahed Ahmad, Joint Director of Public Health, said: "Our Annual Public Health Report showed that heart disease and stroke is our biggest killer, and we should be doing everything we can to tackle this."
