Did you know that strokes are the third most common cause of death in the UK? And yet, the World Health Organisation, the Stroke Alliance for Europe and the US National Stroke Association all agree that 80% are preventable. Our simple screening tests cover the majority of stroke risk factors. And, should anything be detected early, you and your G.P. can do something about it now before it's too late.

Your risk of a stroke doubles every decade after you are 50. Almost one in four men and one in five women aged 45 can expect to suffer a stroke if they live to 85. Wouldn't it be comforting to know you had reduced the chances of having a stroke or suffering a debilitating condition? So, if you like to face possible health problems rather than ignore them, call 0800 046 7988 now - you could also SAVE pounds 101.

Coming to your area: Our team of screening experts will be in your area soon, using exactly the same high resolution screening equipment as top private hospitals.

You may feel healthy ... but what's really going on inside you? It's easy to put off these decisions - but like Ms. Angela Buck aged 67, you may be glad you acted: "As I knew I was very fit for my age - had a healthy diet, was not overweight and didn't have diabetes - I was tempted to dismiss Life Line Screening. I was shocked to find that I seemed to have some problem. About 85% of my carotid artery was blocked and my surgeon said I was very lucky that I hadn't had a stroke."

Why not call now? The trouble with strokes is that they often occur without warning. There can be no apparent symptoms.

As one of our clients said: "My wife and teenage children are happier now. (M. Bentley, Lancashire). Of course, we can''t give you a 100% guarantee of good future health, but it''s comforting to know that you''ve done all you can to help address and reduce your risk factors.

Now far less costly than before You don't usually get these tests free on the NHS unless you already have symptoms. And they can be extremely expensive privately - costing pounds 100's when only two or three tests are done a day. But we come to over 1,900 convenient community locations like church halls, hotels and leisure centres, and by screening many people the cost is far lower.

We search for common causes of stroke, death and disability. It''s completely painless - you don''t even have to get undressed. If anything is revealed we tell you straight away so treatment can be prescribed by your G.P. So, if you like to help prevent possible health threats now so you don't suffer from them later CALL FREE quoting FPMU-250 0800 046 7988 What would your doctor say if he or she could actually see inside your arteries? Well, now it's possible with a simple ultrasound screening that can reveal dangerous plaque either building-up inside your artery or blocking it.

In just over 10 minutes, one of our scans can help you understand some of your most significant risk factors for cardiovascular disease, the UK''s No.1 killer.

As you age, fatty deposits known as 'plaque' can build-up in your arteries. You may not notice any symptoms, yet still have underlying risks. These are often referred to by doctors as 'silent killers'', because you are not aware until it's too late.

While check-ups with your doctor are valuable, it is a fact that ultrasound is a superior and more accurate approach to screening potential victims of aortic aneurysms, and can visualise the build-up of deposits that can trigger a stroke.

Your full package of screenings will only take about an hour of your time - and you will be notified right away if you have an immediate problem. And remember, you're in safe hands - Life Line Screening have screened more than 7 million men and women.

Your ECG Test checks for Atrial Fibrillation, a heart condition that can multiply the risk of stroke by 5. - Your Ankle-Brachial Index Test checks for hardening of the arteries, which affects 1 in 6 people over 55.

It may show no symptoms - but increases the risk of heart attack or stroke from 2 to 6 times.

- An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is a weakening of the wall of your largest artery that causes it to grow in size. If it ruptures, death occurs in 80% of cases. We offer an ultrasound screening for this.
