Bupa has launched a free online healthcheck to help you keep well with health tips and advice that will not break the bank.
Anyone with web access can take Bupa’s free online healthcheck, giving you a quick, simple and personalised picture of your health based on your medical and lifestyle risks. You can track your health, fitness and overall wellbeing without parting with a penny.
The online assessment takes between 15 and 20 minutes. Once completed, you receive instant feedback on a red, amber and green scale about your diet, stress, fitness, prevention, screening and overall wellbeing. The healthcheck also highlights average risk of breast cancer, bowel cancer, diabetes, heart disease, lung cancer and stroke based on age and current lifestyle.
Dr Peter Mace of Bupa comments: "We know people are worried about money yet they still want to take care of their health. We also know that they are increasingly using the internet for health information and advice but do not know which sources to trust. Bupa’s free online healthcheck is backed by qualified doctors and based on sound clinical evidence. It is simple to use and provides health tips and advice."
