If you are aged 16 - 74 years, we offer a range of health checks to evaluate your health and well-being.
Patients aged 16 –74 years
If you attend the surgery and have not attended in the previous twelve months we shall, in addition to your requested consultation, make relevant enquiries and offer other examinations which may be appropriate to your healthcare.
Eligible Patients aged 40-74
If you are aged 40-74 and have not been diagnosed with heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease, and some forms of dementia we offer the NHS Heart Checks (sometimes known as NHS Health Checks)
Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease, and some forms of dementia. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented - even if you have a history of them in your family. Have your free NHS Heart Check-Up and you will be better prepared for the future and be able to take steps to maintain or improve your health.
The check will take about 20-30 minutes. You will be asked some simple questions for example, about your family history and choices which may put your health at risk. We will record your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity and take your blood pressure. We will do a simple blood test to check your cholesterol level. You will be given personalised advice on how to lower your risk and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Patients aged 75 years and over
To help you remain as fit and as healthy as possible we like to see you at least every 12 months. Please arrange an appointment with our practice nurse around the time of your birthday each year. Consultations may take place at home if clinically necessary.
