"Having a health check highlighted that both my blood pressure and cholesterol were high."
I saw my GP immediately after who prescribed me medication; I am under the belief that this potentially saved my life.
I am now making small changes to my diet and lifestyle for example I am now having 5 portions of fruit and vegetables per day and reducing my alcohol intake.
"It's a great service and more people should have their NHS Health Check."
What is an NHS Health Check?
It’s a FREE* check-up of your overall health. It can help tell you if you’re at a higher risk of getting certain health problems such as:
- Heart Disease
- Kidney Disease
How do I get my results?
You’ll be told your results during your appointment.
Our friendly practitioners will provide you with a cardiovascular risk score, which is an estimate of how likely you are to get heart disease or have a stroke in the next 10 years.
The higher the risk score, the more likely are to develop one of these illnesses, but do not worry – you will also be given supportive and effective lifestyle advice about how to:
- Improve your diet
- Increase the amount of exercise you do
- Lose weight
- Stop Smoking
You may also be referred to one of our other services, such as stop smoking or physical activity.
