Not eligible for an NHS Health Check?
If you’re not eligible for an NHS Health Check, there are still ways of having your general health checked!
If you would like to find out your blood pressure, this may be a service your local pharmacy will offer where they could also give you some advice on the next course of action should there be any issues.
If you are over 74 years old, your GP should provide a health check on request where an examination hasn’t been performed in the preceding 12 months.
Should you have a specific concern about your health, we would recommend that you contact your local pharmacy or book an appointment with your GP.
Between the ages of 30 – 40 years?
If you have no real concerns about your current health, the best action you could take is to fulfil a healthy lifestyle to reduce your risk of developing any long term conditions as you age which may otherwise be preventable.
