NHS Health Check

Get your Free NHS Health Check in Telford 

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40 to 74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

An NHS Health Check will assess your personal risk of developing one of these conditions, and give you advice and support to reduce your risk.

If you are aged 40 to 74 and you do not suffer from any of these conditions you will be invited by your G.P Practice to attend for an NHS Health Check.

When you receive your Invitation, contact your G.P. surgery straight away to make your appointment. The check will only take around 20 minutes and involve taking some measurements and a simple blood test with immediate results. 

If you do not want to wait for an invitation you can contact your G.P. practice and they will be able to arrange your appointment as long as you are eligible for the check.

Visit the NHS website for more information about why you should book your NHS Health Check.
