If you are aged 40 – 74 and live in Norfolk you could be eligible for a FREE NHS Health Check.
As we get older our risk of developing heart disease, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, stroke and certain types of dementia increases - the good news is they can often be prevented. Norfolk County Council funds free NHS Health Checks for residents aged 40 – 74 who have not already been diagnosed with one of the above conditions.
An NHS Health Check takes about 20 to 30 minutes and you can have a free check once every five years. NHS Health Checks are available in most GP surgeries and at over 60 pharmacies across Norfolk.
Are you eligible?
Unfortunately, not everyone is eligible for an NHS Health Check. Please see the frequently asked questions for more information about why we might not be able to offer you a check.
