About the pilot

UCL Workplace Health is launching a Heart Health Check pilot for all staff members based on the UCL East campus to help understand their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Delivered jointly by an Occupational Health Advisor and Wellbeing Lead, the Heart Health Check incorporates: a CVD risk assessment using the QRISK calculator; blood cholesterol assessment (finger-prick test); blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) measurements. Based on your results, the Occupational Health Advisor and Wellbeing Lead will discuss with you an appropriate action plan, including lifestyle changes which you could make to support your health and wellbeing.
