Health Checks

When you first join the practice you will be asked to have a "new patient health check" with the Practice Nurse.

We recommend that all patients have a health check at least every 5 years, more often for certain conditions and for the over 75's.

Patients aged 40-75 are entitled to the new NHS Health Check to assess for cardiac risk factors - please book an appointment for a fasting blood test then after the results are back (usually one week), please book a further appointment with the Practice Nurse for the full health check.
