Free heart checks on offer to elderlyLocal | Cissy So 17 Sep 2019
A heart disease prevention society has launched the city's first free mobile check-up for atrial fibrillation after identifying that 151 out of 4,000 people are likely to have the condition.
Elderly citizens aged 65 or above and high-risk individuals who have diabetes, high blood pressure or have had a stroke are eligible for the free check-up by the Hong Kong Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Society.
It will subsidize all the fees of an initial check-up and follow-ups, which cost about HK$10,000.
The society's van will be on Nam Ning Street in Aberdeen on Sunday and at Siu Sai Wan Swimming Pool on September 29.
