NHS Health Check

What is a Health Check?

You might be feeling great but, if you’re over 40, you may be higher at risk of developing a stroke, diabetes or cardiovascular disease.

A FREE NHS Health Check can help you stay healthy and reduce these risks by spotting early warning signs.

Keep enjoying the things you love to do, with the people who are important to you by making changes now.

NHS Health Checks are back!

We take the health of Buckinghamshire residents very seriously and want to make sure we are doing everything we can to support those who need it. Therefore it is with great pleasure to announce that we will be back delivering NHS Health Checks!

The Health Check is not the same as we once knew it. Due to the current pandemic we have taken every possible step to ensure the safety of our clients, as well as our staff. The NHS Health Check is now split into two halves. You will have a 15 minute physical Health Check (height, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes*) and a 15 minute a telephone call with another member of staff to go through lifestyle questions and your results will be explained.

Please be assured we are following Government guidelines and our staff have completed all relevant training and will be fully equipped with PPE. However if you do have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Where to get a Health Check?

We recommend getting a free NHS Health Check at your GP surgery. If you're in the 40-74 age group without a pre-existing condition, you can expect to receive a letter from your GP inviting you for a free NHS Health Check every five years.

If you are eligible for a free NHS Health Check but cannot get one at your GP, or you don’t have a GP, we can provide one for you in a convenient community location and time to suit.  Give us a call or register today to find out if you’re eligible and book in.

The list below is regularly updated and shows the community locations where our Coaches will be available to give free Health Checks. Due to the current pandemic, we are unable to accept 'walk ins', therefore you will be required to book in advance. 

It couldn't be easier! If you would like to book a specific appointment time and venue, please register online or give us a call to schedule your personal Health Check.
