NHS Health Check

Helping you prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease


Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease. But these diseases can often be prevented, and NHS Health Check can help you by assessing your risk and giving you personalised advice on how to reduce it.

The new NHS Health Check is for adults in England between the ages of 40 and 74. In this guide you can learn more about what the check is, what it involves, and when and how you can get it. There is information that will help you to understand more about your results when you receive them, and what to do next.

Take charge of your long-term health, with NHS Health Check.
