If you're aged between 40 and 74 and haven't already been diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, stroke or high blood pressure, you may be eligible for a health check.
At your health check you will be asked about your lifestyle and family medical history. You'll also have some routine tests like height and weight, blood pressure and cholesterol. You will be able to discuss your results with your health check provider and talk about what you can do to be healthy.
Taking up the offer of a free NHS Health Check will improve the health and wellbeing of people in Hampshire and in the long term will reduce the cost on health and social care services.
If you are eligible you will receive an invitation letter from your GP around your 40th, 45th, 50th, 55th, 60th, 65th and 70th birthdays.
Where you can have your health check
If you don’t want to wait for your invitation, any eligible Hampshire resident can have an NHS Health Check without the need for an invitation letter.
Please note. Your health check will take place at the GP surgery that you are registered at. Pharmacies will refer you to your registered surgery for the tests.
After your Health Check
Being aware of your risks and taking steps to reduce them can improve your chance of maintaining or improving your health as you get older.
