NHS Health Checks

We offer Free NHS Health Checks to patients between the ages of 40-74 years who don't have an existing vascular conditions, or a chronic disease such as diabetes, CHD, hypertension.

We are currently inviting eligible patients on a weekly basis but you are more than welcome to phone the practice and make an appointment if you don't want to wait for the invite to arrive!

Think of your NHS Health Check as being your "midlife MOT". It checks that some of your body's most important systems are all running smoothly. Among other things, your blood pressure, cholesterol, and BMI will all be checked and your results given to you. 

Crucially, your NHS Health Check can detect potential problems before they do real damage. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented.

Your NHS Health Check will assess your risk of developing these health problems and give you personalised advice on how to reduce it.

It's free of charge, including any follow-up tests or appointments.
