FREE NHS Health Check
We have been carrying out free NHS Health Checks since the beginning of December 2012. The test involves a blood pressure and cholesterol check amongst others. We are delighted to say that we have had an excellent uptake of the check and customer feedback has been very pleasing.
Patients who have had a check have found it very useful as a pointer to areas where they could improve or even that they need to keep up with what they are doing.
If you are interested in having a Free NHS Health Check, you can see if you are eligible below and either call us or pop in to arrange an appointment.
The check is available for patients between the ages of 40 and 74 who have NOT been diagnosed with or suffered from:
The check should last about of 25 minutes and involves a cholesterol check, blood pressure check, height & weight measurements along with some personal & family history questions and lifestyle advice.
The above conditions often go undiagnosed and only come to light after an event serious enough to result in a hospital admission.
The aim of the check is to avoid these serious events by identifying risk factors serious enough to require medication and also offering lifestyle advice that can cut your risk.
