HEALTH CHECK SERVICE
The NHS Health Check programme aims to prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia. Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74, who has not already been diagnosed with one of these conditions and without certain risk factors, will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess for possible risk factors for these diseases and will be given support and advice to minimise possible risk.
These health checks will be carried out by a Nurse or HCA. You will receive a letter or a text message when your Health Check is due.
