NHS Health Checks are targeted at adults in England, aged 40-74, and are designed to spot the early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. Taurus Healthcare supports NHS Health checks in all 20 Herefordshire GP practices.
As we get older, there is a greater risk of us developing one or more of the above conditions. NHS Health Checks are designed to help find ways to lower the risks.
If you're aged 40-74 and do not have a pre-existing condition, you can expect to receive a letter from your GP or local authority inviting you for a free NHS Health Check every five years.
For more information about the service please contact your GP Surgery.
