The NHS Health Check is available to most people aged 40 to 74 and is a chance to make sure they are better prepared for the future and to be able to take steps to maintain or improve their health. It’s like a midlife MOT.

Having a health check only takes about 20 to 30 minutes and includes blood pressure, cholesterol and BMI checks. After the health check, personalised advice is given about how to lower any risks that have been identified and stay healthy.

To book a health check you can contact your GP or visit www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/healthchecks to find out about clinics taking place near you and check your eligibility for a free health check.
