NHS Health Checks

NHS Health Check is designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia.

If you are aged between 40 and 74 and have not already been diagnosed with heart disease, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease or stroke, you will receive an invitation to have an NHS Health Check every 5 years.

It will give you a clearer picture of your health and will help you take action to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and kidney disease. Everyone is at some risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes or kidney disease.

The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented, even if you have a history of them in your family.

The NHS Health Checks are being provided by GP Surgeries only.

If you are eligible you will receive an invitation to attend a Health Check at your GP Practice. Alternatively you can contact your GP Practice and ask if you are eligible and if it is possible to arrange an NHS Health Check
