NHS Health Check

What is a Health Check?

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

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

Keep enjoying the things you love to do, with the people who are important to you by making changes now. Take a look below at what an NHS Health Check involves:

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.
