The NHS Health Check is your chance to get your free midlife MOT. For adults in England aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition, it checks your circulatory and vascular health and what your risk of getting a long term cardiovascular disease is. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease or type 2 diabetes. Your free NHS Health Check can spot early signs and help prevent these happening to you, which means you’ll be more likely to enjoy life for longer.
All patients aged between 40-74 registered with a GP will receive an invitation for a free NHS health check.
Once you’ve had your NHS Health Check, your healthcare professional will discuss your results with you. You’ll be given advice and support to help you lower your risk and maintain or improve your vascular health.
