NHS health checks
We offer all patients aged between 40-74 a free health check every five years.
At the check we will take your family medical history, check basic data such as your height, weight, blood pressure and pulse, offer any advice about smoking and weight loss if appropriate and do a simple blood test to check your cholesterol.
The purpose of the health check is to catch any early signs of cardiovascular disease, so that we can help prevent it.
We will contact patients when they are due to have the test and strongly recommend that all patients take advantage of this free check.
