What are NHS Health Checks?

Health Checks are provided free of charge to East Riding adults aged 40 to 74 years old who have not previously been diagnosed with a long term condition, such as heart disease, liver disease, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and high blood pressure.

It is advised that adults who meet this criteria should have a health check every 5 years. 

What happens at a NHS Health Check?

Individuals attend a face-to-face consultation where they are asked a series of questions and some simple tests are carried out to determine their risk of developing health issues in the future.

The questions include:

  • age, gender and ethnicity 
  • details of their past illnesses and those of close family members 
  • medications currently being prescribed 
  • lifestyle habits such as smoking, alcohol intake, physical activity and diet. 

The tests include:

  • blood pressure
  • body mass index (BMI)
  • blood test for cholesterol

After the check is completed, you will discuss the results and what this means to your health. Lifestyle advice is provided, for example on how to get help to give up smoking, to be more active, to eat healthily or to lower alcohol consumption. If needed, you will be referred to other services.
