Free Health Checks for Carers
The NHS Health Check programme 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 2 diabetes and kidney disease.
This programme is currently being provided in 30 Richmond GP practices. It is also available from eight pharmacies (list of pharmacies that provide the service). We also hold monthly ‘outreach events’ at various locations throughout the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
The free programme includes checking your blood pressure, cholesterol and body mass index to identify your risk of being diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease in the next 10 years.
How do I get an NHS Health Check?
If you’re registered with a GP, you may be invited for the check by letter, or you may be offered the check when you're at your GP or local pharmacy.
