NHS Health Check

NHS Health Checks are being offered free to people aged between 40 and 74 once every 5 years. The check is to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes. You will have a finger prick blood test to check your cholesterol and glucose level - the result is available immediately. You are able to eat and drink as normal before this test.

You do not need an NHS Health Check if you are already on medication for high blood pressure or high cholesterol.   You do not need an NHS Health Check if you have any of the following conditions - heart attack, angina, stroke, or diabetes.

If you have ever smoked for more than 20 years we recommend you have a spirometry test. Spirometry is a special breathing test to test your lungs. The test takes about 15 minutes, and is carried out by our Health Care Assistant. Please book an appointment if you have not had this test and have EVER smoked for 20 years or more. About 1 in 5 smokers develop a lung problem called COPD, and it is important to be diagnosed as early as possible. By the time a smoker develops symptoms of COPD often over 50% of lung function has already been permanently lost.

Bowel Cancer Screening

The NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme offers screening every two years to all men and women aged 60 to 69. People in this age group will automatically be sent an invitation, then their screening kit, so they can do the test at home. After your first screening test, you will be sent another invitation and screening kit every two years until you reach 69. If you are aged 70 or over, you can request a screening kit by calling 08007076060.
