Free NHS Health Checks

The check takes about 20-30 minutes and looks at things such as cholesterol, blood pressure etc. to provide a cardio-vascular risk score.  Advice and support for a healthier lifestyle can then be given to those with a high risk rating.  This offer is available to all taxi drivers, free of charge, on a voluntary basis only.

Taxi Driver Health Survey

Researchers from the University of Bristol’s School for Policy Studies are conducting a new study aimed at improving the lifestyles of Taxi Drivers in the South West.

Dr Simon Sebire and Mr George Thomas are looking for around 100 drivers to complete an ONLINE SURVEY about their work patterns, and their attitudes towards eating healthily and being physically active.  The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete and the first 100 participants will be offered a £10 Love to Shop voucher for completing the survey.

The researchers are also looking for about 15 drivers to be interviewed about developing a new lifestyle project for Taxi drivers in the South West and you can register your interest in this at the end of the online survey.  Participants can complete the survey and choose not to do an interview.

Taxi drivers are a high risk of a number of lifestyle-related diseases like heart disease and diabetes.  The University of Bristol researchers are committed to learning from taxi drivers themselves about how together they could develop a lifestyle programme that would be appealing and effective at improving taxi driver health. Please consider helping if you can.
