NHS Health Checks

A free NHS Health Check will help you know more about your health and how to keep fit and well. It could stop you getting heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease or having a stroke

Who should have a health check?

  • If you are between 40 and 74 you will can come in for a health check
  • Other people can ask for a health check if they are worried about their health
  • If you already have heart or kidney disease or diabetes or have had a stroke then you will not be asked to come for a health check

Health checks happen every 5 years

Why do I need a health check?

Anyone can get heart disease or diabetes or kidney disease or have a stroke

As you get older you are more at risk of getting these illnesses

There are some things that can make you more likely to get these illnesses. These are:

  • being fat
  • not keeping fit
  • not eating a good diet
  • smoking
  • drinking too much alcohol
  • having high blood pressure

You can have these things if you are a man or a woman and they may cause:

Having a health check can stop you getting these illnesses and keep you fit and well

Even if you feel fit and well it is a good idea to have a health check. We can catch some illnesses early on before you know you have them

Some illnesses run in families. It is a good idea to have a health check as you may be more at risk of getting some things
