Your Questions Answered

What is a health check?

The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It can tell you whether you’re at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as: heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, stroke. If you’re over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for. If you’re aged 40-74 and you haven’t had a stroke, or you don’t already have heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease, you should have an NHS Health Check every five years. Any follow-up tests or appointments are also free of charge.

What happens during the health check?

An NHS Health Check takes around 30 minutes. The Health Coach will ask you some simple questions about your lifestyle and family history, measure your height and weight, and take your blood pressure and do a blood test – often using a small finger prick test. Based on this, they will be able to give you an idea of your chances of getting heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes. If you’re over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for. You will then receive personalised advice to lower your risk. This could include talking about: how to improve your diet and the amount of physical activity you do, taking medicines to lower your blood pressure or cholesterol, how to lose weight or stop smoking.

What are the benefits?

As well as measuring your risk of developing these health problems, an NHS Health Check gives you advice on how to prevent them. The risk level varies from person to person, but everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some types of dementia. Your NHS Health Check can detect potential health problems before they do real damage.

 

The health conditions picked up by the NHS Health Check are, when added together, the biggest cause of preventable deaths in the UK, with around 7 million people affected by them. In its first five years, the NHS Health Check is estimated to have prevented 2,500 heart attacks or strokes. This is the result of people receiving treatment after their Health Check. The latest research suggests that: for every 27 people having an NHS Health Check, one person is diagnosed with high blood pressure, for every 110 people having a Health Check, one person is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, for every 265 people having a Health Check, one person is diagnosed with kidney disease.
