NHS Health Checks
If you are aged between 40 and 74 you could be eligible for a free health check.
The check is to assess your risk of developing Heart Disease, Stroke, Kidney Disease or Diabetes. If there are any warning signs then, together, we could do something about it.
The check involves a simple blood test and a 20 minute appointment 1 - 2 weeks later, with one of our Healthcare Assistants. The check is based on straightforward questions and measurements such as sex, age, family history, weight and blood pressure. Following the check, you will receive free personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy or improve on your current life style.
If you wish to have a health check, please ring the surgery on 01953 602220 to make an appointment, or ask in surgery at Reception.
(Please note there are other providers of NHS health checks. Visit www.norfolkslivingwell.org.uk/nhshealthcheck for more information.)
