Health Checks

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It’s designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions and an NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk. (Extracted from NHS Choices)

All eligible patients will be invited into the surgery every 5 years for a free NHS Health Check which we encourage our patients to take up. For further information about the NHS Health Check programme, you can visit the NHS Choices website by following the link above.
