Don’t lose out on your FREE NHS Health Check

Don’t lose out on your FREE NHS Health Check

You might be feeling great but, if you’re over 40, you may be at risk of stroke, diabetes or cardiovascular disease (heart disease and illnesses linked to your circulation).

A FREE NHS Health Check can help you stay healthy and reduce these risks.

Keep enjoying the things you love to do, with the people who are important to you.

Why do I need an NHS Health Check?

There are many things we love and enjoy about our lives that we don’t want to change. As we get older, though, we’re more at risk of illness if we don’t keep our heart healthy. The good news is, you don’t have to lose out on the things you enjoy. If you understand how healthy your heart is today, it can make a big difference to helping you stay well.

Many of us want to feel fitter and stronger, have more energy, sleep better and be less stressed. If this sounds like you, having your NHS Health Check is a great place to start.

We are here to learn about your health, how you feel in yourself and what’s important to you. You will also help the NHS to save money and time on illnesses that can be prevented.

Who is it for?

You can get your free NHS Health Check if you live in Coventry and:

  • Are aged between 40 and 74
  • Have not been told you have heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease by your GP or had a stroke
  • Are not on statins
  • Have not had an NHS Health Check in the last five years
  • Are signed up with a GP in Coventry.

Have your Health Check at a place you can get to easily, find your local GP or Clinic here or call us on 0800 122 37800 

What happens at the NHS Health Check?

NHS Health Checks give people like you the chance to learn more about your health – in a way that doesn’t judge, but which supports you. It all starts with YOU, so our team will give you the chance to talk about your way of life now and what’s important to you.

Our trained healthy lifestyle advisors provide quick and easy tests to understand how healthy you are now. Like an MOT for your body, you’ll see what’s working well and be given your own personalised plan.

This will give you simple steps to stay healthy or, if needed, to make small lifestyle changes – so you can keep doing the things you love and enjoy for longer.

The check takes about 20-30 minutes and the following will be recorded:

  • History of family illness and any medication you have been prescribed
  • Your height, weight, sex, ethnicity and age
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol level (after a simple blood test)
  • Information regarding your diet, exercise and alcohol intake
  • Body mass index (BMI).

You will be given clear advice and support which will help to reduce your risk of suffering a cardiovascular disease in the future. If appropriate, you will be referred to the Healthy Lifestyles Service for further support. If necessary, you may be referred to your GP for follow up tests, which may result in you being offered medications to help reduce cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
