A new health clinic in Spalding is opening today, as part of the UK’s largest research programme





A new health clinic is being launched today as part of a national research study.

The mobile clinic, which is located near Sainsburys on Kings Road, Spalding, aims to transform the prevention, detection and treatment of conditions such as dementia, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and strokes – and the goal is to create one of the most detailed pictures of peoples health.

Individuals who live close to the clinic have been sent an invitation in the post and during the appointments, participants will have a blood sample and some physical measurements taken.

Volunteers will be offered information about their health, including blood pressure and cholesterol levels – and there will be an opportunity to receive feedback about their risk of diseases in the future.

The programme currently has 188 clinics across the UK. One of the volunteers explained that if it helps the millions of people with genetic health predispositions, it will be a good thing – ‘the sooner you learn about it, the sooner you can do something before it’s too late’.

Dr Raghib Ali, Chief Executive and Chief Medical Officer of Our Future Health, said: “We’re opening these new clinics each month to give people across the UK the opportunity to take part in our programme and make a difference to the future of healthcare.

“Researchers will apply to use our resources to make new discoveries about diseases that affect all of us. We want people from a range of backgrounds to be represented in Our Future Health, so that new discoveries can truly benefit everyone.”

Anyone over the age of 18 can join by signing up online by visiting ourfuturehealth.org.uk and completing an online health questionnaire and booking an appointment.
