Why do I need an NHS Health Check?
Even if you feel fine, there might be things happening under the surface you can’t see. The NHS Health Check is just a few simple tests that help identify your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and dementia. If you’re at risk, we will help you prevent it.
What will happen at my NHS Health Check?
The NHS Health Check lasts around 30 minutes.
- A health professional will measure your cholesterol, blood pressure, height and weight.
- You will be asked some simple questions about your lifestyle and family history.
- You will get advice about how you could improve your health and stay well for longer.
- You may be referred to free or low-cost activities, training or exercise programmes available in Brighton and Hove.
