Health Check

Did you know that if you are aged between 40 – 74 years you are entitled to a free health check from your GP?

You can expect to be invited by your GP for a free NHS Health Check every 5 years.

The NHS Health Check looks at your risk of developing conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.  You will be offered advice and support to lower your risk and to improve your health.

If you already have these conditions you will already be receiving care and treatment so will not be offered an NHS Health Check.

For more information contact your GP Surgery and check out the NHS Health Checks webpage.
