CARERS could be eligible for a free health check.

The Pompey Health Bus will be at the Disability and Carers Awareness Exhibition on Tuesday, June, 11, from 10am to 3.30pm, at the Pyramids Centre, in Southsea.

Staff will be offering carers vouchers for a free NHS health check.

If carers are not eligible, health trainers will be available to offer advice and support on how to live a healthier lifestyle, such as quitting smoking or losing weight.

Carers who are eligible will be given a voucher to have a check at a pharmacy.

Amanda McKenzie, health checks manager, said: ‘Carers may often disregard their own health because they’re so busy looking after someone else, so we think it’s important to help them to take care of themselves.’
