People with learning disability

If you have a learning disability and have joined the learning disability register, you might also be able to have a free Annual Health Check. For more information visit the Mencap - Don't Miss Out - Annual Health Checks website (opens in a new window).

Who is the NHS Health Check for?

If you are in the 40-74 age group, without a pre-existing condition and you have not had a NHS Health Check in the last 5 years, please contact your GP practice to arrange your Health Check.

What is NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a free check-up of your overall health. It can tell you whether you're at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as:

  • heart disease
  • diabetes
  • kidney disease
  • stroke
  • dementia

Any follow-up tests or appointments are free of charge.
