A free NHS health check is an opportunity to check that your body’s most important systems are running smoothly, and for any early signs of conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes.
What happens at an NHS Health Check?
The checks will be carried out by a qualified healthcare professional. It’s straightforward and painless and the whole process will only take 20 to 30 minutes. Your blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass index will be checked and your personalised results given to you along with advice on the steps you can take to improve your health and feel better for longer.
NHS Health Checks are completely free of charge, including any follow-up tests or appointments.
