Health depends on many factors, some beyond our control, but your own knowledge and actions are key and, uniquely, under your own control. Having routine health checks and “knowing your numbers” is vital to protecting your health, well-being and lifespan.
The NHS Health Check is a free health check-up for adults in England age 40-74 who do not have any pre-existing medical conditions. It is designed to spot early signs of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and dementia which are more likely to develop as we age. The Health Check is intended to lower these risks.
From age 40 you should have a check every 5 years and may be called automatically by your GP surgery. If not, you can also book the test yourself in your surgery or at participating pharmacies, mobile units or via your local authority.
