One You - checking ourselves

If you’re aged over 40 you can get a free NHS Health Check, which is a great way to check your health and get personalised advice on keeping yourself healthy and active

As we get older, we have a higher risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Your free NHS Health Check can spot the early signs of these and help prevent them

By attending your NHS Health Check and making healthy changes, you’re more likely to live longer and have more quality time with family and friends

If you’re over 40, and don’t have a pre-existing health condition, your GP or local authority will invite you for your free NHS Health Check
