What is an NHS Health Check?
What’s involved, and why do we do them?
The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40 to 74. These tests are designed to help assess the risk of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, or dementia. As we age, we are at a higher risk of developing one of these diseases. Finding ways to lower this risk is the goal of an NHS Health Check
