NHS Health Checks

Aged 40-74? Get your free check

NHS Health Checks

The programme

As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and certain types of dementia.

An NHS Health Check can help to identify these risks.

Finding out you have a risk factor for a health condition can be really helpful, because you can take action to improve your health and reduce your risk.

How does it work?

It’s a 30 minute appointment with a trained Health Check Practitioner.

We’ll carry out some simple tests, including weight, height, blood pressure and cholesterol with a finger prick blood test. We’ll also ask you some questions about your lifestyle and family health history.

You’ll then be given a risk score and free advice on what to do next.

Are you eligible?

You can have an NHS Health Check if:

  • You are aged between 40 and 74
  • You live in Essex or are registered with a GP in Essex
  • You are not being treated by your GP for an existing diagnosed vascular condition
  • You are not currently prescribed statins
  • You have not had an NHS Health Check in the last five years
Stop Smoking

Stop Smoking Service

Your best chance of quitting for good

Stop Smoking

The programme

Stopping smoking is one of the best things you will ever do for your health.

When you stop, you give your lungs the chance to repair. There are lots of other benefits too - and they start almost immediately.

You are three times more likely to quit smoking for good with our help.

How does it work?

Our free six week programme is evidence-based and uses a blend of behaviour coaching and nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).

You’ll be supported by a personal NCSCT Qualified Health Coach through one-to-one sessions to set a quit goal and achieve it.

Are you eligible?

You can join our Stop Smoking Service if:

  • You are aged 18 or over
  • You live in Essex (excluding Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock)
  • You are ready to quit smoking
