Background

Having a Health Check involves a consultation in private with a healthcare professional who will undertake some checks on your health, including your Body Mass Index, your blood pressure and cholesterol. It gives an indication of your risk of developing preventable diseases such as:

  • Type two Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure

Health Checks are currently delivered in Cheshire West and Chester by GP practices, and are offered to individuals aged 40 - 74 years old who do not already have an identified pre-existing condition. The Health Check normally takes less than half an hour. Results are discussed with you, including advice on lifestyle changes and onward referrals for treatment if necessary.

What are we consulting on

We are consulting on what locations and venues people who are eligible for a Health Check (aged 40 - 74 years old and living in Cheshire West and Chester) would find most convenient to have a Health Check, and whether offering choices in venues would encourage people to take up an offer of a Health Check.

We want to know what you think about our ideas for a variety of locations where Health Checks could be undertaken.

What my views will be used for

Your feedback will be used to help inform possible future changes to the way that Health Checks are delivered.
