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, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As you get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.
Even if you currently feel well, it is still worth taking advantage of our FREE NHS Health Check as this can lower the chances of you developing the aforementioned conditions in the future.
A free NHS Health Check performed by Bedworth Health Centre should take no more than 20 minutes and can be performed by one of the Nursing team.
They will ask you some simple questions about your family history and current lifestyle and then will take some basic observations such as height, weight, blood pressure and cholesterol.
They will then discuss what your results mean and you will be given personalised advice on how to lower your risk of developing one of the aforementioned conditions and to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
