Free NHS Heath Checks
Free NHS Health Checks are a National Scheme to try to help prevent the onset of various cardiovascular problems such as high blood pressure, ischaemic heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and diabetes. Please read the attached National leaflet which explains the check.
The target group for these checks is the 40-74 age group who are not already known to suffer from cardiovascular disease.
Patients are being invited to make appointments for these checks. If you are in the target group you will receive an invitation by post which will include a pre-check questionnaire (please complete this before attending). This is a large group – please be patient awaiting your invite.
The first appointment will include various measurements and a blood test. When all the results are available you will have a follow up appointment when you will receive personalised advice regarding your health. Any treatments and necessary follow ups will be arranged at this time.
