NHS Health Checks

If you are aged between 40 and 74 years old and you have not been diagnosed with any of the following conditions you are eligible for an NHS Health check:

Stroke

Dementia

Heart Disease

Kidney Disease

Diabetes

On prescribed statins

Everyone 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. If you have your free NHS health check this will enable you to take preventative steps and help you to maintain or improve your health.

During your appointment we will record your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity. We will also take your blood pressure along with some blood tests and ask you a few questions about your family history and lifestyle choices. From all of this information we can then assess your risk of developing any of the above conditions and give you advice on how to reduce your risk and stay healthy.
