NHS Health Check

Aged 40 to 74?

You could be entitled to a FREE health check.

The check is quick and simple and is offered to adults aged 40-74 living in Doncaster who are NOT currently under the care of a doctor for stroke, heart or blood pressure problems, diabetes, kidney disease and or taking a statin therapy.

Your health check will not only assess your risk of developing these conditions but also offer advice on how to reduce your risk.

Check your heart age

How healthy is your heart? Use this tool to find out if your heart age is higher or lower than your actual age.

Anyone over 30 can use the tool, even if you don't know your blood pressure and cholesterol. However, without these numbers, your result will be an estimate and we recommend you get tested to get an accurate result
