Men across the Shoalhaven are being encouraged to get a free health check up for blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol.

The Men's Health Van will be available outside the Ulladulla Civic Centre on November 17 and 18 between 10am and 4pm.

Trevor Schofield from the Ulladulla Rotary Club says they're finding alot of people are reluctant to go to the doctor.

The project has so far resulted in more than 5,600 health checks with over 3,100 men being referred for medical treatment.

Rotary estimates 164 lives have been saved through the earlier identification and treatment of potentially serious health issues.
