Health checks

The Health Check programme is for adults in England aged between 40 and 74, who haven't already been diagnosed with vascular diseases, or have certain risk factors such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol treated by medication.

The free service is delivered by all 38 GP practices in Barnsley.

Ask your GP or practice nurse about your free health check when you next visit or, if you receive an invitation to attend a health check, make sure you go along to find out your risk of coronary heart disease or diabetes.
