NHS Health Checks

If you are aged 40-74, you may beĀ eligible for a free NHS Health Check from your GP or selected pharmacy.

Why they are important

Even though you may be feeling great, if you're over 40 you could be at risk of:

  • heart disease
  • stroke
  • kidney disease
  • diabetes
  • dementia


To qualify for a free Health Check, you must:

  • be aged 40-74
  • be a Richmond upon Thames resident or be registered with a GP within the borough.
  • have not been previously diagnosed with diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease or stroke
  • have not had an NHS Health Check in the last 5 years
