NHS Health Check

The home of the NHS Health Check in Barnsley and Doncaster

As the lockdown eases we are hopeful that NHS Health Checks will resume in both practices and the community, at the time of this update 23/06/2020 we have been given permission to allow Health Checks to recommence in some Barnsley Practices but so far not in Doncaster or the community. We will keep you updated as and when further information is available. We look forward to providing NHS Health Checks in both Doncaster and Barnsley as soon as is practicable.

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 or a telephone call direct from ourselves 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.

Ready to make that change?

Am I eligible for a free NHS Health Check?
