Free NHS Health Checks are available every 5 years for patients aged 40-74, who don’t have a pre-existing condition.

The health check is designed to check your vascular or circulatory health and look at your risk of developing some of the most disabling – but preventable – illnesses. Think of your NHS Health Check as being your “midlife MOT”. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. The NHS Health Check will assess your risk of developing these health problems and our Healthcare Support Workers will give you personalised advice on how to reduce it.

The check should take about 20-30 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol level.
