The NHS Health Check is a sophisticated check of your heart health.

It is a FREE SERVICE for adults in England aged 40 to 74 who don’t have an existing circulatory condition.

It checks your vascular or circulatory health and works out your risk of developing some of the most disabling – but preventable – illnesses.

Think of your NHS Health Check as being your “midlife MOT”. It checks that some of your body’s most important systems are all running smoothly. Among other things, your blood pressure, cholesterol, and BMI will all be checked and your results given to you. 

Crucially, your NHS Health Check can detect potential problems before they do real damage. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented.

Your NHS Health Check will assess your risk of developing these health problems and give you personalised advice on how to reduce it.

The NHS is inviting all eligible people on  a rolling programme by letter over the next couple of years but you can just call us on 020 7924 9344 to make an appointment before you get the letter and we will do the check for you free of charge if you are eligible.

Take charge of your long-term health, with NHS Health Check!
