What is the NHS Health Check?
The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It can tell you whether you’re at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as:
* Heart Disease…
* Kidney Disease
If you’re over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for.
If you’re aged 40-74 and you haven’t had a stroke, or you don’t already have heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease, you should have an NHS Health Check every five years.
Any follow-up tests or appointments are also free of charge.
If you’re not sure if you’re eligible for an NHS Health Check and would like one, or if you are eligible but haven’t had an NHS Health Check in the last five years, please ring the surgery on 01661 842626 for an appointment.
