What is a Health Check?
An NHS Health Check aims to help you lower your risk of four common but often preventable diseases: heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. It's for adults in England aged between 40 and 74 who have not already been diagnosed with any one of those four conditions. By identifying any risks early and taking steps to reduce this you can improve your chance of maintaining or improving your health as you get older.
This national programme is expected to prevent 1,600 heart attacks and strokes a year and save 650 lives.
Please ask at Reception if you would like to have a Health Check with our Health Care Assistant. She will then check your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes and you'll be offered personalised advice and support to help you lower that risk.
