What happens at an NHS Health Check?

At the check, you’ll be asked some questions about your lifestyle and family medical history. You’ll also have some routine tests, checking your cholesterol and blood pressure.
After your results have been explained, you’ll be offered personalised advice and support to help stay healthy, and lower your risk if any of your results need improving.
Your results are recorded in a booklet which you can take away with you.
The test takes 20-30 minutes
