On-board is a The Registered Nurse who will take your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels; and have a general quick chat about your health.

It is estimated the service has saved more than 500 lives in the past five years.

Project leader Adrian Payne said, “While men are our key target as we don’t want them dropping dead in the paddock, ladies are also welcome.”

The van is parked at Homeco Nowra today ( February 20) and moves south to the Ulladulla Civic Centre on Wednesday.

It is open between 9.30am and 3pm each day.
