NHS HEALTH CHECK

Health Check - Woman with Cuppa

What is an NHS Health Check?

INTRODUCTION

Did you know? If you are aged 40 - 74 you are entitled to your FREE NHS Health Check.

The NHS Health Check assesses your risk of developing preventable diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease, and also helps you to take action to reduce your risk for the future.

If you are aged 40 or over, you will receive an invitation to have a NHS Health Check. You will be asked some simple questions about family history or any medication you take. Your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity will be recorded; and your blood pressure and a blood test will be taken. You never know, this FREE check could be life enhancing.
