North Shields Health Checks

In conjunction with NHS, Seafarers Hospital Society, North Tyneside Council, Newcastle United Foundation, North Shields Fish Quay Company Limited, and Caley Fisheries North Shields.

This is the first time this has been carried out in North Shields and indeed in the North East.

NHS Health Checks are helping you prevent: diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke & Dementia.
