New health surveillance services, including:
Lung function testing
Please call us for more information
This is our most popular service.
They are carried out on-site and can take up as little as 15 minutes to complete. They can be pre booked or run as a drop-in.
Assessments are accessed voluntarily by employees or members of the public wishing to utilise the opportunity to learn more about their individual health and who wish to gain a greater understanding and control over their general well-being.
- Blood pressure and pulse
- Height, weight and body mass index measurements
- Waist circumference measurements
- Total cholesterol testing using a finger prick device
- Diabetes risk assessment
- Lifestyle discussion
- Raising awareness of age and gender related cancers and illnesses
- Referrals to other health or social service providers
- Telephone and e-mail support where necessary
All the above tests will produce immediate results, enabling us to provide direct and personalised advice to suit the individual needs of each client. These tests can detect any existing or potential health problems for the future. Results cards are given to each participant along with any additional information deemed appropriate. Referrals are made to individual GP’s or other health professionals when further intervention is advised.
Nurse-led Drop-in Service
No appointments are necessary with this service. This option provides the opportunity to discuss issues of personal concern regarding health and well-being with fully trained and experienced nurses in a confidential, non-threatening environment.
We can support any discussions as appropriate using a number of health assessment tools, i.e. blood pressure recordings and body fat monitoring. Examples of stress management techniques can also form part of this service.
Health Education Workshops
Blue Healthcare can organise a variety of interactive health education workshops. These can be arranged to coincide with national health events or as part of your company's health promotion drive. Topics can be selected by the company according to employee interest or areas of particular concern, for example 'Sun Safety' for outdoor workers.
Examples of workshops and events we have carried out include;
Beating Heart Disease / Cancer Awareness / Stress Management and the Promotion of Mental Well-being / Men’s Health / Women’s Health / Back Awareness
Health Support Groups for Employees
Blue Healthcare is able to provide continuing support for those individuals interested in improving their health by establishing workplace support groups such as weight management groups, smoking cessation groups or lunchtime exercise events.
