NHS Health Checks


The NHS Health Check is a free health check-up helping to prevent the onset of diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and certain types of dementia.

If you’re aged 40 to 74 and do not have a pre-existing health condition, you should be invited to an NHS Health Check every five years. IHL offer a service on behalf of our GP member practices, sending regularly scheduled text messages to eligible patients directing them to book an appointment with their GP.

From April  2022 to March 2023 there were 3,476 patients in south Southwark who received an NHS Health Check.
