What is an NHS Health Check?

Even though you might be feeling great, if you’re over 40 you may be at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes or dementia.

A free NHS Health Check with your GP Practice can help you reduce these risks and make sure that you stay healthy.

The NHS Health Check is a free health check-up for adults in England aged 40 to 74 who do not have a pre-existing condition. 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. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk and make sure that you stay healthy.
