NHS Health Check

FREE Workplace NHS Health Checks

The NHS Health Check is a simple, free 20-30 minute check-up for 40-74 year olds to see if they have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (e.g. a heart attack or stroke) in the future. It also checks for signs that may lead to diabetes or kidney disease. Those who are at increased risk are offered advice, support and treatment as appropriate to reduce and manage their risk.

Nottinghamshire County Council is responsible for making sure that everyone who is eligible has the opportunity to have a check-up.  Most people have the check at their GP practice, but some people find it difficult to access this service. We therefore commission Phakey’s Pharmacy, Nottingham, to deliver community and workplace-based sessions so that people who can’t get a check at their GP practice don’t have to miss out.

We are keen to reach out to as many people as possible who are eligible for the check, so are inviting you to host a free NHS Heart Check-Up session at your workplace or organisation, delivered by our NHS pharmacist or pharmacy technician.  An agreement will be made clearly stating the responsibilities of all parties.

This is an excellent chance to benefit your staff and people attending your organisation, so we hope that you will take this opportunity to get involved.

For further information about arranging a session, please contact:
