Want to look after your health?
If you're aged 40 to 74, without a pre-existing condition, you may be eligible for a free NHS Health Check.
It's a great way to check your health and get personalised advice on keeping yourself healthy and active. Think of it as your health MOT.
As we get older, we have a higher risk of high blood pressure, heart disease or type 2 diabetes. Your NHS Health Check can spot the early signs of these and help prevent them.
It's designed to spot early signs of
- Kidney disease
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
If you're in the right age group, you should expect to receive a letter from your GP inviting you for a free NHS Health Check every five years.
If you are not registered with a GP you can still get a free health check by registering on the LWSW (www.livewellstaywellbucks.co.uk) service to book a check in the community - eligibility criteria apply.Last reviewed: 09/04/2018
