NHS Health Check
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. If you are aged 40-74 and you have not had an NHS Health Check in the last 5 years, book an appointment to see our Practice Nurse who can do the check for you.
More information is available on NHS Choices website www.nhs.uk/conditions/nhs-health-check
