NHS Health Checks

Did you know that if you're between 40 and 74, you are eligible for a free 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:

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. 

These are arranged through your own personal GP or in local community settings. 

Any follow-up tests or appointments are also free of charge.
