I just came to do shopping at Asda and saw the S4H van. The thing that surprised me was being able to have an NHS Health Check in a van, which was good as it was a drop-in session, with no need to book an appointment. I am 43 so I had started to think about my health more. Having an NHS Health Check made me realise that I am not that active, so I am going to join a gym.

Running has been so good at maintaining my stamina and physical/mental health and being out in the fresh air is a definite plus. The countryside and areas that you run become place you notice and enjoy, so when you discover something this good the benefits need to be shared.

“I was really scared about being tested for HIV, I didn’t know what to expect. But I needn’t have worried, the test was a simple finger prick test and the result was available in 1 minute. Testing is really discreet, theres no waiting room, when you arrive for your appointment you’re seen straight away – the service is quick, discreet and non-invasive. And I had the option of a 3 month supply of free condoms. I just wish I hadn’t put off knowing my HIV status for so long.”
