Introduction

The NHS Health Check programme is a national preventative programme to support people to stay healthy for longer. These free NHS Health Checks are available once every five years to anyone aged between 40 and 74 with no pre-existing cardiovascular condition.

You are eligible for a free NHS Health Check if:

  • You are registered with a Somerset GP or resident in Somerset
  • You are not being treated by your GP for an existing diagnosed vascular condition
  • You are aged between 40 and 74
  • And, you have not had an NHS Health Check in the last 5 years.

If you have a current health concern please do not wait, contact your GP to discuss.
