Free NHS Health Checks

Stay healthy and book your free NHS health check


If you’re aged 40-74 with no underlying health conditions, and you haven’t had an NHS Health Check in the last 5 years, you may be eligible for a free NHS Health Check.

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:
Heart disease
Type 2 Diabetes
Kidney disease
Stroke
During the check-up you’ll find out how to reduce your risk of these conditions. If you are 65 and over you will also be informed about the signs and symptoms of dementia.

You can choose to book your NHS Health Check in 3 ways at a location and time convenient for you:
Your GP surgery
Local participating pharmacies
Community locations with Reed Wellbeing (commissioned to provide NHS Health Checks by Norfolk County Council)
Book yours today, please visit www.norfolk.gov.uk/healthcheck for more information.
