Screening date

OSTEOPOROSIS screening will be available on Wednesday, July 6, at Hebden Royd Town Hall from 2pm to 4pm.

One in two women over 50 will suffer from this disease and of those who suffer a hip fracture, one in 5 will die as a result.

Preventative screening is not routinely available on the NHS but you can now have a non-invasive scan for the reduced cost of £22 (usually £30). For further information and to make an appointment call Healthcare on 0845 224 6784.
