NHS Health Checks

The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health.

It is 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 can help find ways to lower this risk.

If you’re in the 40 to 74 age group without a pre-existing condition, you should receive an invitation for your free health check from the surgery every five years.

If you are in this age group and new to the surgery, you will be invited for your free health check within six months of joining.

If, once you’ve had your health check and there is no concern over your blood test results, we will invite you again in five years.
