HEALTH CHECKS for those aged 40 - 74
We're now offering free NHS Health Checks to those in the 40 - 74 year old age range, who don't have a history of chronic disease and are therefore less likely to visit the doctor or have a general health check in the normal course of events.
The check, which is offered once every five years, is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroked, kidney disease or diabetes and, if there are any warning signs, to do something about it. The check should take about 20 - 30 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight and blood pressure, as well as a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol level. Following the check you will receive free, personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.
As the check is once every five years, you may not receive an invitation straight away. However, if you do receive an invitation, it's worth investing a little time and effort in attending your appointment. Patients who haven't yet received an invitation, but would like a health check at an early date, are welcome to contact the surgery to request an appointment.
