NHS Health Checks
The NHS Health Check is a national prevention programme for adults in England aged 40-74. It checks your circulatory and heart health and what your risk is of getting a serious disease.
Are Health Checks available in Devon?
Because of a significant decrease to our Public Health Grant, universal provision of Health Checks has been suspended in Devon from 31 March 2016. We are currently reviewing the service, and looking at ways to continue a targeted service.
What can I do if I’m worried about my health?
If you have any concerns about your health, you should speak to your GP or a trained healthcare professional.
A new healthy lifestyle service will be available later in 2016, which will support adults and families to adopt a healthier lifestyle, providing advice, information and support.
