SeaFit Health Awareness Event, Friday 24th June, 1pm - 4pm and Saturday 25th June, 10am - 1pm

Join us for a SeaFit Health Awareness event in the Sea Cadets Building, Seagate, Roanheads, Peterhead, AB42 1JP.

Working at sea can be challenging to both physical and mental health and wellbeing and the unpredictable nature can mean it is difficult to look after your health and access regular healthcare appointments and support.

The SeaFit Programme aims to help support long term health improvements and help prevent development of long-term health conditions by making healthcare more accessible to fishermen and their families.

Joining us are several partners who will be on hand to provide advice and information and answer questions on a range of both physical and mental health and wellbeing matters, which will help to encourage early prevention, detection, and self-management of health conditions. We hope this will go some way in helping to support active, retired and ex fishermen and their families within the local community and beyond in line with the SeaFit Programme aims.

Come along and have a cuppa and a chat – all welcome

In fact, our survey in 2018 found that just over 50% of the general public surveyed could name a symptom prostate disease/cancer. Only 1/3 of men over 55 were able to name a symptom of prostate disease/cancer.

So come along to our ToolBox Workshop to find out!

The presentation is a short but informative power point presentation covering all the above questions and much more. See our sports pundits Chris Paterson and Craig Levein in the studio being interviewed by Grant Stott and talking about prostate disease then watch out for Craig’s ‘cheeky sign off’.
