Free health checks are available for patients between the ages of 40 to 74 without a pre-existing condition. The check is designed to assess your risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes.
These conditions are the number one cause of premature death and patients are often unaware that they’ve developed a problem until it’s too late.
The check is available from Nicola your health care assistant. It’s quick and easy, and if we do find a problem, you’ll get plenty of personalised help and advice on simple lifestyles changes that can make a huge difference.
The check is based on questions and measurements such as age, family history, height, weight and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol. A free health check is available every five years.
We are currently sending out postal invitations to relevant patients inviting them in for this health check. However if you fit the above category and wish to have your health check now then please contact reception to make your appointment.
