FREE health checks are being offered to Wigan residents.

Aspiring foundation trust, Bridgewater Community Healthcare are providing the borough a range of unpaid services on September 27, as part of a NHS Annual General Meeting (AGM).

As the NHS is facing the challenge of improving quality of care while still being forced to make cuts, the trust hopes to reassure patients that they are there to give the public the service they deserve and to let them have their say.

Health chiefs and interested members of the public meet once a year to review organisation’s plans and decision making process as well as the previous financial year.

Following this, Community Healthcare Trusts take the opportunity to discuss updates with patients, as well as giving advice on other related matters.

Return transport can be arranged from the event at the Haydock Thistle Hotel, Penny Lane, Haydock, WA11 9SG.

To arrange a health check, call 01942 482655, or email by September 14.
