Health Matters!

Get a free, confidential health check with us!

We have a team of deaf Health Connectors who are running several health clinics across Derby city. They are NHS-trained to test for hypertension. After the test, if you are showing signs, we will make a free, confidential referral to your local Pharmacy for you to get advice, treatment and/or support quickly as possible.

  • Visit one of our health clinics – coming soon.

Funded by NHS and Community Action Derby, working together with Derby Health Inequalities Partnership.

    Case Study

    “I enjoyed it very much & also want to say thanks for the check-up. My blood pressure was very high. I did not expect that and was quite shocked. I went to my local chemist for 2nd time as my BP reading was still high and I will arrange an appointment with my GP!!”
