NHS Health Checks

Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease but these diseases can often be  prevented. We offer the NHS Health Check at the  Surgery to adults between the ages of 40 and 74. We will  assess your risk and offer personalised advice on how to reduce it. The check includes:

  • height & weight measurement
  • urine testing
  • cholesterol test
  • diabetes screening
  • blood pressure check
  • dietary advice
  • smoking advice
  • exercise advice

The checks are carried out by our nursing team. If you wish, we can refer you on to a health trainer to give you tailored support and guidance on your health and wellbeing.
