The NHS Health Check aims to help you lower your risk of four common but often preventable diseases: heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
It’s for adults in England aged between 40 and 74 who have not already been diagnosed with any one of those four conditions. At the check your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes will be assessed, and you’ll be offered personalised advice and support to help you lower that risk.
We are writing to all eligible patients during the coming year and inviting you to make an appointment for your Check.
You can find out more information on NHS Health Checks on the NHS Choices website.
