NHS Health Checks

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)
Cholesterol test
Blood Pressure
Height and weight
BMI
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!
