NHS Health Checks


Precious Moments

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 or stroke 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 up 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 50 pharmacies across Norfolk.
