Why have a Health Check?
The following statistics are from the British Heart Foundation 2022, click here for more information:
Heart and circulatory diseases cause around a quarter of all deaths in the UK; that's more than 160,000 deaths each year, or 460 each day – that’s one death every three minutes.
In the UK, it’s estimated that 6-8 million people are living with undiagnosed or uncontrolled high blood pressure.
It's estimated that around 850,000 people in the UK have undiagnosed Type 2 diabetes.
Early disease recognition and management can reduce the risk of disease progression and consequently complications.
What will my results tell me?
After your Health Check, the healthcare professional will discuss your results with you tailoring advice based on your lifestyle. They may suggest a visit to your GP if needed. The results will tell you if you are at risk of developing certain disease or it may recognise potentially undiagnosed conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, raised cholesterol etc. and therefore allow early management to prevent further complications and disease progression.
How long does this service take?
The health check should take no more than 30 minutes.
