A HEALTHY hearts programme to give people an MOT for their bodies is now on offer in Camden.
The programme - a winning entry last year from the Dragons' Den-style Innovation Fund - is being launched at the Al Rahman Mosque in Crowndale Road.
Dr Devi Nair, from the Royal Free Hospital's team carrying out the checks, said: "Small changes now can make a big difference to people's future health.
"This project provides a way of checking if people will have heart problems later in life. By detecting risk factors early and doing something about it, problems are less likely to develop later on."
