NHS Health Check (Public)

Closes 1 Nov 2021

Opened 27 Sep 2021

Overview

The NHS Health Check programme is a cardiovascular disease risk assessment programme with the goal of delaying or preventing the onset of diabetes, heart and kidney disease and stroke for eligible residents aged 40-74 years. The NHS Health Check can support our residents to quit smoking, lose weight, increase their activity levels and reduce alcohol consumption to recommended limits.

After completion of your NHS Health Check, you are provided with your cardiovascular risk of developing a heart or circulation problem (such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes or kidney disease) over the next 10 years.

In Wolverhampton, Health Check services are carried out by GP Practices and include the following checks:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Alcohol use or intake
  • Levels of physical activity
  • Diabetes risk and blood glucose levels

You can access advice and information about Health checks from your GP Practice and the NHS website. As a Wolverhampton resident, please visit www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/nhshealthchecks for more information on Health Checks.
