About the NHS Health Check
The NHS Health Check programme aims to help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia. Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74, who has not already been diagnosed with one of these conditions or have certain risk factors, will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess their risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes and will be given support and advice to help them reduce or manage that risk.
Local authorities are responsible for commissioning the NHS Health Check risk assessment. However, the programme requires collaborative planning and management across both health and social care. Health and wellbeing boards will therefore be vitally important in the local oversight of this mandated public health programme.
This website is a
collaborative resource between the Department of Health, Public Health England,
NHS Improving Quality, Local Government Association and local health and social care teams which
brings together national and local resources aimed to support those involved in
commissioning and providing the NHS Health Check programme.
