People aged 40-74 are being encouraged to take a free NHS Health Check.
The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It’s designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart 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.
A video is available on YouTube to explain why going for your NHS Health Check is so important.
