NHS health check

The NHS health check programme aims to help prevent:

  • heart disease,
  • stroke,
  • diabetes,
  • kidney disease and certain types of dementia

Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74, who has not already been diagnosed with one of these conditions or have certain risk factors, will be invited (once every five years) to have a free health check and will be given support and advice to help them reduce or manage that risk. 

You can currently get an NHS health check at all GP’s across the borough, simply contact your GP to book in.
