The NHS Health Check invites adults aged 40 to 74 - without previously diagnosed heart disease, diabetes or chronic kidney disease - for a free health assessment.
The NHS Health Check is an important step for many people towards improving their lifestyle and becoming more aware of what they can do to minimise health risks. The NHS Health Check can help lower people's risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of dementia.
Think of the NHS Health Check as being a "midlife MOT". It checks that some of your body's most important systems are all running smoothly. Crucially, your NHS Health Check can detect potential problems early and allow you to put them right before they do real damage. Among other things, your blood pressure, cholesterol and BMI (body mass index) will all be properly checked.
