Boundaries for Life health screenings
Boundaries for Life is a health promotion intervention initiative devised by a small consortium of health and sports stadia professionals, with the screening service provided by a team of volunteer doctors, dentists and nurses.
The health check service is similar to an annual car MOT – checking blood pressure, blood sugar level, cholesterol level, body mass index – all of which are key indicators of chronic disease.
The initiative has been run out of selected professional cricket matches since 2011 , including the 2013 Investec Ashes game at Kia Oval and the England v Australia ODI held at Emirates Old Trafford.
Sussex have been working with Boundaries for Life for the last two years offering the free checks, which take just 15 minutes to complete, during a match at the ground. The checks are very relaxed and will provide information that will be shared and explained to the individual which they can then follow up with their GP.
In the last 2 years over 80 people were offered the opportunity to have a snap shot of their key health indicators, and we hope to offer this once again this year 2016 at the Tour match against Pakistan on Day 2.
Our latest health screening opportunity took place on the 9th July and can be read about fully here.
