NHS Health Checks
If you are aged 40 to 74 and do not already have diabetes, stroke, heart and kidney disease or are not being treated for high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels you are eligible for a free NHS Health Check. Even if you are feeling well, an NHS Health Check can help you to lower your chance of developing health problems in the future.
During your health check, which takes about 30 minutes, you’ll be asked some simple questions about your family history and any medication you’re taking. Your blood pressure and pulse will be checked and your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity will be recorded. Your results will be discussed with you and you will be given personalised advice on how to lower your risk and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
If you were asked to have a blood test before your check, the results will also be discussed with you.
