Have you been invited for your free NHS HEALTH CHECK?
This is for anyone between the ages of 40 and 74yrs, who is currently well and not having any regular health checks at their Doctors.
Letters are being sent out by every GP practice but many people just throw them away as they don’t realise how important this check up can be.
This is your chance of getting a risk assessment for heart disease by having a blood test and a few measurements taken by a health care assistant. So look out for your invite! Don’t be shy and don’t forget to fill out the short questionnaire. People are paying £100′s for the service privately and it is and does save people’s lives. Luckily our wonderful; NHS is offering a Free Health Check to everyone that fits the criteria.
You will be sent a questionnaire to complete about your life style and you need to fast for 12 hours before having the blood test at your appointment. But with all the results you will find out your cholesterol level and whether you are diabetic and be given a risk score of how likely you are to suffer from heart disease in the next 10 years.
It’s got to be worth investing a little bit of your time to find out about your health status, especially with a free health check.
