Check it out before it catches you out!


The NHS Health Check is a national scheme, open to eligible adults aged 40 – 74, and aims to help individuals to understand their risks of developing preventable health concerns such as heart disease, type two diabetes and kidney disease.

NHS Health Checks are delivered at GP surgeries, as well as community venues across Staffordshire with our dedicated team of healthy lifestyle practitioners. We also visit local workplaces to offer staff the opportunity to receive a check without having to leave the office. After offering an onsite drop-in health check clinic for staff at Alton Towers, one member of staff commented:

 

"The practitioner explained everything fully as we went along, it gave me a much better understanding of how I can affect my cholesterol level, sugars and risk of diabetes, and what they are currently. I was given plenty of tips on simple things that can affect a good change to lifestyle without costing anything, and was made aware of a couple of apps that help to give daily feedback on progress. I came out feeling much better than I went in!"
