Free Health Checks for over 40’s in England

Free NHS health checks for everyone over between the age of 40-74 years are to be implemented from tomorrow

The new NHS proposals drafted last year are to come into force from 1/4/09

The health MOT will screen over 40’s  for risk factors for cardiovascular disease & stroke such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes , raised cholesterol, smoking & physical inactivity

The health screening will be carried by GP’s and practice nurses.

It is hoped the new screening programme will reduce deaths from diseases such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes and kidney disease.
