Articles - Book Dad in for a Father's Day MOT


 In celebration of Father's Day Bupa is offering nearly a third off one of its leading health checks, the Bupa Coronary Health.
 The special offer, which includes a £196 discount, is designed to appeal to sons, daughters and wives who are keen to give Dad a health kick in time for summer.
 Health assessments can help spot any underlying health problems and encourage people to make positive lifestyle changes - three quarters of people who have had a Bupa Health Assessment have taken active steps to improve their health afterwards.  And with men twice as likely as women to change poor health habits following concern from their loved ones[1], a health assessment for Father's Day might just be a life changing gift.
 Bupa's Coronary Health check, on offer for £499 for a limited period only[2], focuses on a key health concern for men - heart disease.  Heart disease is the UK's biggest killer and Bupa Coronary Health identifies the main risk factors for heart disease and offers expert advice on nutrition, exercise and other aspects of lifestyle which are directly related to heart health.
 The 120 minute assessment, which includes half an hour with a Bupa doctor, includes the following tests:
  
     
  •   Heart Scan - a CT scan of the heart designed to look for early signs of heart disease
  •  
  •   Blood pressure and pulse rate measurement
  •  
  •   Resting ECG - monitoring the electrical rhythms of the heart.
  •  
  •   Coronary risk scoreBody mass index calculation
  •  
  •   Height and weight measurements
  •  
  •   Cholesterol profile
  •  
  •   Diabetes
  
 Dr Peter Mace, assistant medical director, Bupa Health and Wellbeing, said:
 ""Bupa is a partner of Men's Health Week, which lands this year 13-19 June - coinciding with Fathers' Day. We know that men are generally less engaged with their health than women, but they are also more likely say their partners can influence them to change their lifestyle - so a gift of a Bupa Health Assessment could well be the encouragement your husband or father needs to lead a healthier life."
