NHS Health Check

Aged 40 -74  Find out about our Free NHS Health Check

Every one is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia.  The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented - even if you have a history of them in your family.  Have your free NHS Health check and you will be better prepared for the future and be able to take steps to maintain or improve your health.

What happens at the check?

  • The check will take 20 minutes

  • You'll be asked some simple questions,  for example about your family history and choices which may put you at risk.

  • We'll record your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity.

  • We'll check your blood pressure and your cholesterol.

  • You'll be taken through your results and told what they mean.  You'll be given personalised advice on how to lower your risk and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  • Treatment or medication may be prescribed to help you maintain your health

Even if you're feeling well, it's worth having your NHS Health Check now.  We can then work with you to lower your chances of developing these health problems in the future.
