We offer free NHS Health Checks to eligible patients aged 40 - 74. These are intended to assess the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes and will be offered to patients without pre-existing disease every five years.
Why do I need an NHS Health Check?
Everyone has a chance of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or type 2 diabetes. NHS Health Check will help you and your health professional to identify your risk earlier. You'll then be given advice on what action you can take to lower your risk and improve your chances of a healthier life. For example, making changes to your diet or becoming more active. If you would like further information, please follow the link to the explanatory leaflet Free NHS Health Check.
