The NHS Health Check is your chance to get your free midlife MOT. For adults aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition, it checks your circulatory and vascular health and what your risk of getting a disabling vascular disease is.

How do I get an NHS Health Check?

You can expect to receive a letter from your GP inviting you for a free NHS Health Check over the next few years. In the meantime why not attend one of our events listed below.

As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing something dangerous like high blood pressure, heart disease or type 2 diabetes. Your NHS Health Check can spot early signs and help prevent these happening to you, which means you’ll be more likely to enjoy life for longer.

What lifestyle changes can I make?

Once you’ve had your NHS Health Check, your healthcare professional will discuss your results with you. You’ll be given advice and support to help you lower your risk and maintain or improve your vascular health.
