MHERV is an initiative of the Rotary Club of Warners Bay in collaboration with local Rotary clubs and other community groups.

With the support of the Royal Freemasons Benevolent Institution (RFBI) a Registered Nurse undertakes free basic check-ups for men however ladies are also welcome to come in and have a free health check.

The purpose-built MHERV van is staffed by male nurse Bill Power.

It offers free of charge health screening services for Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Diabetes.

The consultation takes about ten minutes and provides immediate results, helping to improve health outcomes for men. 
Bill has the knack of being able to relax even the most stressed clients. 

During the confidential consultation, Bill takes the opportunity to also chat about other health related concerns, including state of mind.  

This service is offered in a relaxed, confidential and informal setting under Covid safe Guidelines.

Over the last four years the van has seen nearly 11,000 people and results have averaged approximately four percent who have required urgent attention, around 40 percent are advised to follow up on something with their GP in the next week and 56 percent are encouraged to keep up the good work.

Fred Millard from Nambucca Valley Rotary told News Of The Area, “Over those four years MHERV has potentially saved over four hundred people from a severe health event.”

For your free health screening check for Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Diabetes go to the Nambucca Valley Plaza Carpark Giinagay Way, Nambucca Heads on Wednesday, 2 November between 9.30am – 3.30pm or Thursday 3, November between 9.30am – 3.30pm.
