NHS Health Check
The NHS Health Check is a free health check-up for adults in England aged 40 to 74 designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia.
As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions and an NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.
To see if you are eligible for a check, and instructions on how to book, visit the NHS Health Check page.
