Expert Opinion
“We are delighted to be working with some fantastic health organisations and charities to delivering this service to the community in Leeds for the first time; offering those who attend the event the opportunity to receive free health checks and advice.

“We hope the Health Awareness Day will offer the local community a chance to come along and learn more about a range of health issues.

“It can sometimes be difficult to come to terms with health problems and approach medical professionals for advice on general health and lifestyle. However, this informal event will provide people with the opportunity to come along and learn more about different conditions and other related issues.”
