If you’re aged between 40 and 74 and have not had a stroke or been diagnosed with heart disease, kidney disease or diabetes then you’re eligible for a free health check from your pharmacist.
Having an NHS Health Check will better prepare you for the future and will enable you to take steps to maintain or improve your health.
Why should I have an NHS health check?
As you get older the risk of developing illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia increases. There are also certain things that will put you at even greater risk:
- being overweight
- being physically inactive
- not eating healthily
- drinking too much alcohol
- high blood pressure
- high cholesterol.
Both men and women are at risk but the good news is that these conditions can often be treated. The NHS Health Check will help you and your pharmacist identify your risk earlier
