FREE NHS Health Check

FREE NHS Health Check

If you’re over 40, it is recommended that you have a health check every 5 years.

A FREE NHS Health Check can help you assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented even if you have a history of them in your family.
