This Saturday is World Health Day, a global health awareness day that is celebrated every year on April 7th to mark the founding of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The WHO is a specialised agency of the United Nations concerned with international public health with the ultimate goal of building a better, healthier future for people all over the world. World Health Day is an annual event that draws worldwide attention to global health, so what better time to consider our own health and the steps we can take to improve.

In recent years there has been a huge rise in the consumer healthcare market with more and more people seeking to take control and responsibility of their health – whether it’s through monitoring physical activity with wearables, measuring their sleep patterns or having regular health check-ups. We as a nation have an ever growing interest in how our diet and lifestyle are impacting our inner body, and with Medichecks providing an easy way to track and monitor progress, we are more health conscious and aware than ever before.

Why is it important to have a health check?

Our customers come to us for many different reasons, whether it’s to investigate their symptoms, to see how they can improve their sporting performance or to confirm that the healthy lifestyle steps they are taking are having the positive impact they expect. While we have hundreds of customers who come back to us year after year, just to confirm that their lifestyle changes are still doing them good, we also have nervous first-time customers who have put off having a health check for years because they fear that it is too late for them to change their unhealthy habits as the damage would already be done. 

If you fall into this category - don’t put it off for any longer! You don’t have to be ill to benefit from a comprehensive health check. Nothing is better than a clean bill of health and if your results show that something is amiss, rest assured that most of the conditions we test for can be reversed through lifestyle changes or medication if caught early enough.

Use World Health Day to take control of your health!

We are used to having regular dental and sight checks ups, so why shouldn't we have regular health check-ups? Having regular health screens throughout your life, you can easily track any changes and act accordingly, safe in the knowledge that you are doing everything in your power to achieve and maintain good health. Don't sweep your health worries under the rug, act today!
