NHS Health Checks for 40-74 Year Olds
NHS health checks are being offered to people aged 40 – 74 once every five years.
This 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 20 minutes and is based on straight forward questions and measurements such as age, gender, family history, height, weight and blood pressure. There will be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol and glucose level.
Following the check, you will receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.
