All this week, in recognition of World Health Day, the Hospital Quirónsalud are offering free health checks at the clinic.

Specialist medics will test for such conditions as hypertension, diabetes and obesity, as well as offering free oral examinations to spot early signs of dental problems.

The tests are available at their centres in Torrevieja, Orihuela, Santa Pola and Crevillente and will accompany a variety of campaigns to raise awareness of major health risks in the build up to World Health Day celebrated on Friday.
