RESIDENTS across Warwickshire are being urged to check-up on their health this spring.

Warwickshire County Council is calling on all residents to make sure they keep all their health appointments and check-ups.

Health chiefs are also reiterating that NHS cancer screening programmes can help to diagnose cancer or risk of cancer earlier and improve the likelihood of successful treatment. If eligible, residents are encouraged to make every effort to attend screening tests when invited.

Screening tests can detect a problem early, before any symptoms might have manifested themselves and finding out about a problem early can mean that treatment is more effective.




Vaccination programmes help to protect against preventable diseases, providing additional protection to eligible people and to those around them by helping to stop diseases spreading to people who cannot have vaccines.

Other recommendations include checking immunisations are up-to-date, getting COVID booster jabs if eligible, checking any niggles or concerns with a health professional and attending screenings.


WCC’s health spokesperson Shade Agboola, said: “Attending routine health appointments is a vital way to ensure you are taking the best care of your health, whether this is screening, vaccination appointments or talking to a health care professional about your concerns, looking after yourself and your health should be a priority and will help you lead the healthiest life possible.”
