NHS Health Checks

The checks are part of an effort to make sure people aged between 40-74 have the information they need about their health in order to make important lifestyle changes and reduce their risk of developing diseases like diabetes and coronary heart disease.

Everyone aged between 40-74 in England will begin to be invited for a free health check to help reduce deaths from diseases such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes and kidney disease. These illnesses are responsible for a fifth of all hospital admissions and affect four million people across the UK.

The health checks will consist of:

• straightforward questions to patients on their health and diet,
  exercise habits and family medical history

• height and weight and Blood pressure measurements taken from patients

• a simple blood test for cholesterol and in some cases for glucose levels

• a follow up, personal assessment setting out the individual's level
  of risk and what they can do to reduce this

• recommendations of what could be done to reduce risk including:
  weight management programmes, stop smoking, physical activity programmes.

At present you will receive invitations to attend the checks from the surgery. We won't forget you...
