NHS health checks
HealthWorks are working in partnership with Public Health England and Hampshire County Council to deliver the NHS health checks.
If you are aged between 40 -74 you may be eligible for a free NHS health check. If you are aged over 40 you may be at risk of heart disease, diabetes or stroke. A NHS health check can help you to reduce these risks and help make sure you stay healthy.
Your NHS health check will take approximately 20 - 30 minutes and will include the following:
- Body Mass Index
- Blood Pressure
- Diabetes Risk Assesment
- Alcohol Awareness
Your results will be fully explained by the HealthWorks Instructor delivering your check. If any risks are identified they will work through an action plan to help you make positive lifestyle changes, taking steps to reduce these risks. Your results will be sent straight through to your GP Practice.
Checks for individuals take place in the HealthWorks office based in Places Leisure Eastleigh. The HealthWorks team is also available to visit work places or community groups if there are a sufficient number of eligible people who wish to have a check.
