Find out more about our FREE NHS Health Check in Camden

Even though you might be feeling great, if you are over 40 (or over 30 and South Asian) you may be at risk of kidney, heart disease, stroke or diabetes. A FREE NHS Health Check can help you reduce these risks and make sure that you stay healthy.

You are eligible for a free NHS Health Check if:

-You are between 40 – 74 years old or you are between 30 -74 years old and of South Asian Ethnicity.

-You live in Camden or you are registered with a Camden GP.

-You have not had an NHS health check within the last 5 years.

-You have not been diagnosed with or not taking medication for cardiovascular diseases.

The free NHS Health Check takes around 20 to 30 minutes to complete and consists of:

-Straightforward questions about their health, diet, alcohol intake, smoking habit, physical activity and relevant family history

-Height, weight and blood pressure measurements

-A simple finger-prick blood test for cholesterol and blood sugar test (if required)

-Dementia awareness information leaflet (for over 65s)

Each participant will receive a comprehensive health report together with advice and support about how to maintain good health and make lifestyle changes that will help improve that individual’s health. This may include referral to their GP or local lifestyle services such as weight management, stop smoking and physical activities.
