As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease or type 2 diabetes.
Health Check can spot early signs and help prevent these happening to you, which means you’ll be more likely to enjoy life for longer.
The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It’s 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 helps find ways to lower this risk.
Who’s Eligible for a NHS health Check?
- If you’re in the 40-74 age group
- No pre-existing condition
- Not had a NHS health check in the last 5 years
- Within the borough of the pharmacy
If you don’t fall within the above criteria, you can still have a health check privately at the pharmacy clinics.
