What is an NHS Health Check

Click here to find out more – NHS Health Check

 

Dear Patients

We are currently undertaking health screenings of patients aged 40-74 who are not known to have medical conditions.    This is to identify risk and hopefully prevent cardiac problems, high cholesterol and assess your risk of stroke/heart disease.

We would appreciate it if you would be willing to take part in this.

Please make a 20 minute telephone appointment to see Helen our HCA

Prior to this appointment you will be required to undertake a non fasting blood test.  Please contact the surgery and a blood form will be provided.

We would appreciate your cooperation and thank you for your time.

Am I eligible for an NHS Health Check?

The check is for people who are aged 40 to 74 who do not have any of the following pre-existing conditions:

  • heart disease
  • chronic kidney disease
  • diabetes
  • high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • atrial fibrillation
  • transient ischaemic attack
  • inherited high cholesterol (familial hypercholesterolemia)
  • heart failure
  • peripheral arterial disease
  • stroke
  • currently being prescribed statins to lower cholesterol
  • previous checks have found that you have a 20% or higher risk of getting cardiovascular disease over the next 10 years

You should have regular check-ups if you have one of these conditions. Your care team will be able to give you more information about this.
