The free NHS Health Check aims to catch diseases early, when they are more treatable. Research shows that people who have been through the NHS Health Check are more likely to be aware of their risk of heart disease, diabetes and other serious conditions, and respond positively by making changes to their lifestyle.

This guide will help you understand what a health check is, what will happen during your health check and why it is essential to book your health check as soon as possible.
