New Year, New You at Southside
It’s a cliché we know, New Year, New You. However, January is the perfect time to take a step back and look at what small changes we can make to live well. We fully support this at Southside Shopping Centre as we host the Get to Know Your Health Pop Up Shop, which will be open from 23rd January - 9th February 2017, 7 days a week.
Organised by Wandsworth Borough Council, the Get to Know Your Health Pop Up will be staffed by specialist nurses who will be on hand to offer advice and health check-ups, including blood sugar and blood pressure readings and BMI measuring. All the checks are quick, confidential and completely free.
Sheila Williams, registered nurse and project lead said "We are pleased to say that this is the third occasion that Southside has been chosen as a venue and we are hoping to build on previous successes where we got to see hundreds of people. It’s quick and easy and you can just pop-in while you shop as no appointment is necessary. As well as a free health check, we can put you in touch with a wide range of services offered by Wandsworth council, including health trainers, stop smoking and weight management.
Information and advice will also be available on the signs and symptoms of diabetes and cancer, sexual health and much more. We look forward to seeing you!”
And with three gyms onsite including Nuffield Health, easyGym and Local Motion along with health food stores such as Planet Organic and Holland and Barratt as well as equipment providers such as Decathlon, Southside Shopping Centre is the perfect location to start a New Year with a New You.
