Over 40s Health Check

If you are in good health, you may wonder whether you really need a health check.  However many health conditions begin to manifest themselves as we age, and if we can pick up the warning signs early, we can help you to make changes in your lifestyle or medication which will reduce your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease or stroke.

At the health check our nurses will offer you a series of routine tests (to check your blood pressure, weight and cholesterol for example) and discuss what changes you might make to lower your risk of developing long term medical conditions.

Please note, this health check is only available to patients who are not already being treated for certain long-term conditions such as chronic heart disease, chronic kidney disease, hypercholestrolaemia, diabetes, peripheral arterial disease or  stroke.  (This is because you should already be getting the tests that we offer during the NHS Health Check.)

We are issuing invitations to groups of patients each month to have this health check, which usually takes around 20 minutes.  When you receive your letter, give us a call to book your appointment at a time to suit you, or if you don’t wish to have the health check, just let us know so we don’t keep pestering you!

If you are concerned about your health, please don’t wait to be invited for a health check – just give us a call and book an appointment with your doctor.
