What is an NHS Health Check?
Even though you might be feeling great, if you’re over forty you may be at risk of heart disease,stroke, kidney disease, diabetes or dementia. A FREE NHS Health Check can help identify potential risks and offer preventative strategies to help you stay healthy for longer.
|What a fantastic service!! It’s great to see a proactive approach to people’s wellbeing as well as physical health. Great advice given in a non patronising manor which is far more encouraging than being moaned at by GP.|
Our FREE NHS health checks are available to anyone over 40, can take between 20-30 minutes and include:
Blood Sugar level test (HbA1c Diabetes Test)
Height and weight
Lifestyle screening (smoking test for smokers, screening to prevent heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and dementia)
After a health check has been carried out we’ll talk you through your results and give you advice about what you need to do next. If it is necessary a referral will be forwarded to your GP for further treatment or medication that may be required to keep you healthy.
|I can’t believe how helpful and the way everything was explained to me. I think it’s the best thing that’s happened to me in years. It’s an incredible service that provided. It’s so important and it’s made my day!|
