How will the NHS Health Check help me?
As well as measuring your risk of developing these health problems, an NHS Health Check gives you advice on how to prevent them.
The risk level varies from person to person, but everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some types of dementia.
Your NHS Health Check can detect potential health problems before they do real damage.
What happens at the NHS Health Check?
The Health Check takes about 20-30 minutes. You will be asked some simple questions about your lifestyle and family history, measure your height and weight, take your blood pressure (and do a blood test – often using a small finger prick test OPTIONAL). Based on this, we will be able to give you an idea of your chances of getting heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes. You will then receive personalised advice to lower your risk. This could include talking about: how to improve your diet and the amount of physical activity you do; how to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol; how to lose weight or stop smoking.
