NHS Health Check national data extraction

In June 2018, NHS Digital, acting on behalf of Public Health England (PHE), collected information about people invited to an NHS Health Check. The information contains the results of people who did or did not attend, and was extracted using the General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) run by NHS Digital.

The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities has used the information collected in order to monitor access to the NHS Health Check programme for different populations, as well as the number of people in different communities who are attending an NHS Health Check when invited. It also helps to measure how well the programme is being run across England and whether it is having an impact on the health of local people. 

The data has been analysed to inform our partners and other professionals involved in the programme, including the Department of Health and Social Care, commissioners and professional groups who provide NHS Health Checks, such as pharmacists.

The work was advised by the Data Extract Advisory Committee, which guided how the data extract was used for the purpose of monitoring the reach, implementation and impact of the NHS Health Check programme.
