NHS Health Check

Overview

The NHS Health Check programme aims to prevent heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and kidney disease, and raise awareness of dementia both across the population and within high risk and vulnerable groups. In April 2013 the NHS Health Check became a statutory public health service in England. Local authorities are responsible for making provision to offer an NHS Health Check to eligible individuals aged 40-74 years once every five years.

More information and marketing resources are available to support those people promoting and implementing the NHS Health Check locally and these can be accessed at here.
