NHS Health Check

We are inviting you to attend your free NHS Health Check.

NHS Health Checks are being offered to people aged between 40 and 74 once every five years.  The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes. If there are any warning signs, then together we can do something about it.

By taking early action, you can improve your health and prevent the onset of these conditions. There is good evidence for this.

The check should take about 15–20 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight and blood pressure.  You will also need a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol level.

Following the check, you will receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.

Take a look at the enclosed leaflet for more information about the NHS Health Check and how it could benefit you. 

Please call the surgery and inform the reception that you would like to book NHS Health Check with the nurse.  The receptionist will print a blood form and your appointment should be after you have had your blood test.  The results of the blood test should come to the surgery in a weeks’ time so you will need to collect the blood form from the surgery and have your bloods tested before you attend the NHS check appointment.
