NHS Health Check

Healthy sandwell top banner New

The NHS Health Check is a national screening programme for 40-74 year olds, a bit like an MOT, to check aspects of your health which could lead to conditions like heart disease, diabetes and Stroke.

The check happens every five years, so if you have had one recently you don't need to see us. If you are already seeing your GP for some conditions like diabetes and angina, again you don't need to come for the check, as you are already getting the treatment you need. We can go through the eligibility criteria over the phone, or click here for further information.

The check is completely FREE, and will only take 30 minutes of your time. In the private appointment, the professional will take a few measurements (height and weight), test your cholesterol levels and check your blood pressure.

They will go through the results with you there and then, so you don't need to wait. You will get some advice about how to reduce your risk of serious conditions like diabetes, or heart problems, and suggest free support and services that you can access in Sandwell.

The NHS Health Check prevents

Diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stoke and dementia
