What is the NHS Health Check?

Even though you might be feeling great, if you’re over forty you may be at risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes or dementia.

The NHS Health Check can help you reduce these risks and make sure that you stay healthy.

The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It can tell you whether you're at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and stroke.

The higher your risk score, the more likely you are to develop one of these illnesses.

You will be given lifestyle advice based on your results to help lower your risk of these conditions.

If you're over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for.
