NHS Health Checks
Every eligible person in Bexley is invited for an NHS Health Check once every five years.
Eligibility for NHS Health Checks
You can have an NHS Health Check at your GP surgery if you:
- are 40 to 74 years old
- have not had an NHS Health Check in the last five years
- have not had a stroke, or you do not already have heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disease
Where do I get an NHS Health Check in Bexley?
If you are eligible, your GP surgery will invite you. They will contact you by:
- text message
- telephone call
- when you are in the surgery
Alternatively, if you are eligible, you do not have to wait for your invitation. You can contact your practice and ask to book for your NHS Health Check.
It is important that you attend, even if you feel well, as you will not be invited again for another five years.
