Health and Wellness

As well as helping us to avoid illness, having a healthy lifestyle can also give us more energy, lift our mood, help us sleep better, feel less tired and stressed, and boost our confidence too.

Small changes to our lifestyles now can improve our health right away and it is never too late to start.

If you want to find an organisation who can help you to improve your wellbeing, try searching here on Staffordshire Connects.

Just click on the menu below to find organisations and groups in your local area.

Where can I get a NHS Check?

As you get older, your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and dementia increase, and there are many lifestyle factors that can increase your risk of suffering from these conditions.

By having a free NHS Health Check, you can nip certain conditions in the bud and prevent yourself from developing any in the future.

Who and where can I have a free NHS check?

If you're aged 40-74 and you haven't had a stroke, or you don't already have heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease, you should have an NHS Health Check every five years.

Everyone Health is able to provide you with a free NHS Check. 

It only takes around 20 or 30 minutes and it will involve answering certain questions, having your blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked, as well as recording your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity.
