NHS Health Checks

 

This check is part of a national scheme to help prevent the onset of certain conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease.

 

Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74 who has not already been diagnosed with these conditions will be invited by letter for a check once every 5 years. It’s impossible to say that someone will or will not go on to develop one of these conditions but by taking action now, it can help to lower your potential risk and improve your chances of living a healthier life.

 

If you are outside of this age range and concerned about your health, you should contact your doctor.

Patients who wish to stop smoking will be seen initially by a doctor or nurse and followed up at a nurse clinic appointment to arrange nicotine replacement therapy if appropriate.
