Free NHS Health Checks
The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It’s designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.
The confidential check assess: blood cholesterol level, blood pressure, anthropometric screening and verbal screening. Newcastle United Foundation also offers a free electrocardiogram test (ECG), which can identify irregularities around the heart.

Free Stress and Sleep Workshops
Issues with stress and sleep are very common reasons why we can feel unhealthy, unwell or generally not ourselves if they become persistent problems. Our free Stress and Sleep Workshops explore what we can do to ensure stress-free days and a good night’s sleep by making just a few small adjustments to your routine. Mental Health First Aid England instructors will guide you through some simple techniques to use to ensure you’re back to feeling better.
Stress and Sleep Workshops are organised every month at St. James’ Park. For more information or to book, email email@example.com
"I was unfit and doing no exercise. I got involved with the Foundation Health Programme and had a Health Check, where the staff were really helpful and informative. I started doing Walking Football, which has made a massive difference. I recommend anyone gets involved."Tony Brown
