Best Practice Guidance for the NHS Health Check Programme

A draft of the Best Practice Guidance for the NHS Health Check programme is now available to download: 'Best Practice Guidance for the NHS Health Check Programme' (PDF 694.1KB).

This guidance aims to support local authorities in understanding their legal duties as well as where there is scope for local flexibility and innovation, so they can best meet the needs of their population.

The guidance is also intended to support close working between local authorities and their partners across the health care system, including primary care. This will help ensure any additional testing and clinical follow up is undertaken, for example, where someone is identified in the risk assessment as being high risk of having or developing a vascular disease. This is paramount if the different elements of the programme are to link together and for the delivery of a safe, quality service.  

This guidance updates and replaces the previous NHS Health Check Best Practice Guidance Putting Prevention First. NHS Health Check: Vascular Risk Assessment and Management. Best Practice Guidance. Department of Health. 3 April 2009. Gateway reference: 11473 published in 2009.

Please note that this is draft guidance only and maybe subject to minor change.
