The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It can tell you whether you’re at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as:
If you’re over 65, you will also be told the signs and symptoms of dementia to look out for.
If you’re aged 40-74 and you haven’t had a stroke, or you don’t already have heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease, you should have an NHS Health Check every five years.
Any follow-up tests or appointments are also free of charge.
