Keep a check on your health
Public Health Dorset is encouraging any eligible residents to take up a free NHS Health Check.
Health checks are a free overall check of your health. By attending an appointment you can find out about small lifestyle changes that can reduce the risks of you developing certain health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease or having a stroke.
NHS health checks are available to people:
- aged between 40 and 74
- who have not had an NHS Health Check in the last five years
- who do you not have an existing condition (heart disease, diabetes or kidney disease) or had a stroke
You can also find out what happens when you go to your appointment: www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJ5Po0o-gcM
