 Scotland's New Health Service

Life Begins at 40 is a new health service in Scotland that will help people turning 40 to evaluate their health online or by making a call.

Offered by NHS 24, this is a part Ģ15 million package to give appropriate information and assistance to people over forty on their health needs. A pilot project is also being launched to study the possibility of face-to-face 'heart MOTS' for this age group. It would involve a four-year study at the expense of Ģ3.5 million and will offer a general heart check-up to everyone between the ages of 40 and 74.

Scotland is committed to making the health of its people its top priority. As Shona Robison, the Minister for Public Health claims, "In today's tough economic times we need to be as efficient as possible and that means maximising our investment in the health of the Scottish people."

Turning 40 was a "significant milestone", and educating people about their health and making them aware about their life-styles will help them to look after themselves better, remarks NHS 24 medical director Dr George Crooks.
