NHS Health Check

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

Introduction

Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented, even if you have a family history of them. NHS Health Check can help you by assessing your risk of developing these health problems and giving you personalised advice on how to reduce it.

The 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.
