Free Health Checks Rolled Out Across East Riding

Free NHS health checks offered to people aged between 40 and 74 years are now available across the whole of the East Riding. The five-yearly checks are available from providers across the region, including some GP practices, pharmacies, East Riding of Yorkshire Council leisure centres and by the health trainers. The checks will assess a person’s risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and dementia. By taking early action, steps can be taken to improve health and help to prevent the onset of these conditions. As this service aims to identify people at risk of developing cardiovascular conditions, anyone who is already being treated by a health care professional for any of the conditions listed or has been prescribed medication for these conditions, such as statins, does not need to be re-assessed and is therefore not eligible for the service. Checks take 20 to 30 minutes and are based on straightforward questions and measurements, such as age, gender, family history, height, weight and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure cholesterol levels. After the check is completed, the results will be discussed and advice will be offered, such as how to get help […]

£6.3million Scheme At Kings Mill School In Driffield

A £6.3million scheme to re-build Kings Mill School at Driffield has got underway. The major re-development project will be carried out in two phases, enabling the special school to remain open throughout. Some pupils will be transferred temporarily into accommodation at other nearby schools while the work is underway. Temporary accommodation has been created at the former Gembling Primary School, and additional classroom space is already available at Driffield School for older pupils. The first phase of construction work on the Kings Mill site will see the creation of a two-storey building which houses classrooms, dining facilities, hall and a hydrotherapy pool. This phase, which is on an adjacent former factory site, also includes the remodelling of the former infants’ building to create circulation and administration areas. The work will be carried out by Interserve Construction Ltd, under the council’s YORbuild Framework agreement. It is due to be completed next summer. The second phase will see the demolition of the existing classroom building and its replacement with a new single-storey classroom block. This work is due to be completed in summer 2016. The school’s residential block will remain unaltered and in use throughout the redevelopment. The pupils at Kings Mill […]

MPs Call For Strategic Investment In Flood Protection Around The Humber

Member of Parliament for Beverley and Holderness, Graham Stuart has joined MPs from around the Humber Region in a Parliamentary debate on the Humber Flood Risk Management Strategy. During the debate Graham pressed the Minister to ensure that the banks at Kilnsea and Welwick are reinstated and reinforced after they were damaged during the storm surge in December 2013. Next week the cross-party group of MPs, including Graham, will be taking their campaign straight to the heart of Government when they meet the Prime Minister to highlight the strategic importance of the Humber Estuary and urge him for greater investment to protect homes and businesses from flooding. Speaking during the debate Graham, who is also leading the River Hull Advisory Board, said, “Last Wednesday-25 June-was the anniversary of the 2007 floods. They devastated Hull and the East Riding, led to Hornsea in my constituency being cut off, and led to flooding in every area of my constituency and in Hull, with many people being driven out of their homes-not just for months, but in some cases for years. Flooding is personally devastating, and that will always be at the forefront of my mind when I consider this issue. “With rising […]
