The NHS Health Check is designed to spot early signs of kidney disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and dementia. As people get older, there is a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps to find ways of lowering the risk.
MKGP Plus supports various member practices with the NHS Health Check programme for patients aged between 40 and 74.
The delivery of this programme at scale for Milton Keynes enables us to target more of the eligible population and provide this important screening and early intervention service.
How to access a NHS Health Check
You should receive a letter from your GP regarding booking in a Health Check.
If you have not recieved a letter but are eligible, please contact your local GP surgery.
