NHS Health Check

What is a Health Check?

You might be feeling great but, if you’re over 40, you may be higher at risk of developing a stroke, diabetes or cardiovascular disease.

A FREE NHS Health Check can help you stay healthy and reduce these risks by spotting early warning signs.

Keep enjoying the things you love to do, with the people who are important to you by making changes now.

NHS Health Checks are back!

We take the health of Buckinghamshire residents very seriously and want to make sure we are doing everything we can to support those who need it. Therefore it is with great pleasure to announce that from Thursday 3rd December we will be back delivering NHS Health Checks!

The Health Check is not quite the same as we once knew it. Due to the current pandemic we have taken every possible step to ensure the safety of our clients and our staff. The NHS Health Check is now split into two halves. You will have a 15 minute physical Health Check (height, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes*) and a 15 minute a telephone call with another member of the team to go through lifestyle questions and your results will then be explained.

*Eligibility criteria applies

Where to get a Health Check?

We recommend getting a free NHS Health Check at your GP surgery. If you're in the 40-74 age group without a pre-existing condition, you can expect to receive a letter from your GP inviting you for a free NHS Health Check every five years.

If you are eligible for a free NHS Health Check but cannot get one at your GP, or you don’t have a GP, we can provide one for you in a convenient community location and time to suit.  Give us a call or register today to find out if you’re eligible and book in.
