What is an NHS health check?
We’re all at risk of developing strokes, kidney disease, diabetes and heart disease as well as certain forms of dementia and an NHS Health Check can predict what your chances of developing these conditions are and, with this forewarning, help you take steps to prevent them.
It’s a well-known fact that, as you get older, your risk of developing certain conditions such as heart disease, dementia and type 2 diabetes increases, but there are other factors that can increase your risks of suffering from these illnesses.
These include being overweight, being inactive, eating unhealthily, smoking, drinking too much alcohol alongside having high blood pressure and cholesterol. Everyone is at risk of developing these conditions and having one increases the risk of you getting another in the future. By having your free NHS Health Check, you can nip certain conditions in the bud and prevent yourself from developing any in the future.
What does a health check involve?
The NHS Health Check is available to all adults in Staffordshire aged between 40 and 74. 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. Results are given during the appointment, and you will be able to take away your results card.
