We all think about our health from time to time and many of us know we should do more to look after ourselves - exercise more, drink less alcohol and try to eat healthily. We may even consider having a health check but then put it off for one reason or another. The problem is, when it comes to having a health check - sooner rather than later could be a life-changing decision.
More than 1 in 3 people in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime and, in any given year, around 175,000 people in the UK will have a heart attack – that’s one every three minutes!*
The good news is that in the last 20 years there has been a dramatic improvement in the treatment of such illnesses. This means you are much more likely to survive many types of cancer or heart disease – provided you are diagnosed early enough – in fact ideally before you have any symptoms.*
