NHS health checks
An NHS Health Check can help you spot early signs of any health risks before they become an issue.
NHS Health Checks:
- are aimed at people aged 40-74 years old
- only take 20 minutes
- assess your risks of developing heart disease, kidney disease, type-2 diabetes, stroke and dementia.
If any problems are picked up you'll get plenty of advice and support, giving you the chance to make changes to the way you live to avoid future problems.
To get an NHS Health Check contact your GP.
