NHS health checks

Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes or kidney disease. 

The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented - even if you have a history of them in your family.

Have your free NHS Health Check and you will be better prepared for the future and be able to take steps to maintain or improve your health.

The NHS Health Check is for adults in England between the ages of 40 and 74. It will give you and your GP a clearer picture of your health, and help you take action to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, type two diabetes and kidney disease.


If you're in the 40-74 age group without a pre-existing condition, you can expect to receive a letter from your GP or local authority inviting you for a free NHS Health Check. Don't worry if you haven't got your invitation yet, as you will be invited for one over the next few years. In the meantime, if you are worried about your health, you should contact your GP in the usual way.

In Suffolk, Health checks are provided by One Life Suffolk - find out more on their website: www.onelifesuffolk.co.uk
