Free health checks
A free service for those aged between 40 and 74
This service is for people who have NOT been diagnosed with high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes.
- Get peace of mind
- Reduce your risk of stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes
- Detect any problems early and avoid future health problems
You should think of our health checks as you would an MOT for your car - except it's FREE.
The check will give you a good idea of what your risk is of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia. There are some risk factors for these diseases that can't be changed; for example, your risk increases with age. But there's a lot you can do to reduce your risk, and knowing your risk is the first step.
At the check, you'll be asked some questions about your lifestyle and family medical history. You'll also have some routine tests. From these, your healthcare professional will be able to give you an idea of your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and type 2 diabetes. As well as a breakdown of your results, you'll get an overall score giving your risk of getting heart disease or stroke.
It's all fairly quick and painless, and you’ll be offered personalised advice and support to help stay healthy, and lower your risk if any of your results need improving. This advice could include suggestions on small changes to your diet or how much exercise you should take if your risk is low or moderate.
We also offer an outreach service to employers and community groups to bring health checks to them in Inner City and East Bristol
