A mobile health unit providing a valuable service of checks and lifestyle advice is coming to Largs.

The Activator is visiting Largs Promenade on Tuesday, October 31, with people welcome to pop along to make use of the service.

It includes an early intervention service, carrying out health checks that frequently identify potential issues which often result in a person being referred to a medical professional. In some instances, a health condition is then diagnosed and medication is prescribed.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:

The service can have a tangible impact as the first point of contact and demonstrates the importance of early intervention to prevent further health complications.

It can carry out checks on the following: 

• Blood Pressure
• Grip Strength
• Lung Function
• BMI (body fat)
• Blood Sugars Health Advice
• Presentations
• Fitness Testing
• Cholesterol Check

A KA Leisure spokesperson said: "Come and see us on October 31 from 10am-4pm to get your free health check.

"Have your blood pressure checked, as well as lung function, and support in stopping smoking. Just 15 minutes can change your life."
