Health checks

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40 to74. It's designed to spot early signs of:

  • stroke
  • kidney disease
  • heart disease
  • type 2 diabetes
  • dementia

As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. The NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.
