Confidential health checks for farmers and their families have restarted at a Cumbrian auction mart.
More than 50 people have attended face-to-face sessions at at Junction 36 Rural Auction Centre at Crooklands and also at North West Auctions in Lancaster so far.
Attendees are given a full NHS health check, signposting to mental health assessment and support, blood pressure checks and pulse checks.
The health checks at Junction 36 are led by Kendal Integrated Care Community with support from Cumbria Agricultural Chaplaincy and the next session will take place on Thursday September 16 between 10am and 2pm.
The face-to-face health checks were paused over the past year due to COVID restrictions.
Cara Stride, development lead for Kendal ICC, said: “It was fantastic to be able to set up our clinic again in the auction mart.
“The team met with lots of new people some with very complex health needs that they have been coping with over these last few months.
“A counsellor from the Northern Guild joined our nurse to listen to concerns and help find ways to deal with emotional issues.
“We’re really looking forward to visiting again in September.”
