NHS Health Check

If you are aged between 40 to 74 years, an NHS Health Check is available free of charge. General Practices will invite you for your NHS Health Check.

If you have never been invited please contact your practice or health centre.

The NHS Health Check can lower your risk of developing:

  • type 2 diabetes
  • heart disease
  • a stroke
  • kidney disease
  • certain types of dementia

Through simple lifestyle changes, such as diet and physical activity, you can lower your risk of developing serious health problems. Take action now and enjoy a healthier life for longer.

If you want to change your lifestyle, you don't need to wait for an NHS Health Check. You can also visit Healthy Stockport for help with making changes now.
