NHS Health Checks

NHS Health Check

The check is designed to assess your risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes.

These conditions are the number one cause of premature death in the North East and people are often unaware that they’ve developed a problem until it’s too late.

It’s quick and easy, and if we do find a problem, you’ll get plenty of personalised help and advice on simple lifestyles changes that can make a huge difference.

The check is based on questions and measurements such as age, family history, height, weight and blood pressure. There will also be a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol.
