FREE health screening for all at Lincolnshire Show

The LRSN Health Hut, which has already attended a few smaller-scale events over the last couple of months, will be officially celebrated at this year’s Lincolnshire Show. Free health checks will be available during the Show, all you need to do is make your way to the Peacock and Binnington Stand (3-31) and see one of the lovely nurses who will carry out your health check. P & B are kindly hosting the Health Hut during the Show.

The official celebration and ribbon cutting will take place at approximately 9.30am Thursday 23 June on the Peacock and Binnington stand.

The LRSN Health Hut is a clinic on wheels designed to be hosted at events within the rural community. LRSN already holds static clinics at both Louth Cattle Market and Spalding Produce Auction and has more recently launched a pilot project with FCN to hold clinics at Melton Mowbray Cattle Market. However, this service wasn’t reaching the wider community in rural Lincolnshire but the introduction of the Health Hut earlier this year allows access for many more throughout the county.

Amy Thomas, LRSN Head of Charity, said: “We are excited to celebrate our wonderful Health Hut at the Lincolnshire Show, we’re so pleased that we can now reach those who might otherwise have missed out or not known this free health screening was available.

"Our nurses, led by Nurse Heather who was made famous by our ‘Healthy Selfies’ campaign in 2021 and now features on the side of the Heath Hut, are happy to see as many people as physically possible at the Show. Pop along and get your health checked.”

The nursing team offers not only simple checks like blood pressure, blood sugars, and cholesterol they will have a general chat with you about your overall well-being, both physical and mental.

The Health Hut will be open on both show days, so come along and find out more on stand 3-31.

If you're unable to come to the show, but would like to talk through any health issue with LRSN's nurses, you can make an online appointment for our "Click, Book, Chat" clinics, available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings on alternate weeks.
