Is your client base missing out on a Free NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a freemidlife MOT for adults in England aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition; it checks an individual’s circulatory and vascular health and what the risk is of getting a disabling vascular disease.

It is a great opportunity to promote wellbeing and encourages positive lifestyle changes, which leads to better health.

What is an NHS Health Check?



· It will assess a person’s risk of some of the biggest causes of early death such as heart disease, kidney disease, strokes, type 2 diabetes and certain types of dementia. These conditions can often be prevented.

· It involves a few questions and measurements, including a simple blood test to check your cholesterol.

· As part of the Health Check there is a free personalised advice to help you stay healthy.

In Surrey GPs and Pharmacists in the main offer these health checks and a list of those currently providing them are on the

www.healthysurrey.org website. However the Public Health team at Surrey County Council can arrange on-site NHS Health Checks

for employees in certain circumstances.

Please contact clare.burgess@surreycc.gov.uk if you’d like more information.
