NHS Health Check

What is an NHS Health Check?

A free NHS health check could highlight if you are at high risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease or certain forms of dementia.

The health check takes around 20 to 30 minutes.

What is involved?

The health check will take around 20 to 30 minutes and will include:

  • A 1:1 meeting with one of our fitness experts at your chosen leisure centre
  • Some simple questions about your family history and lifestyle
  • Measurements taken for height, weight and blood pressure
  • A simple blood test to check cholesterol level
  • We will also record your sex, ethnicity and age to help calculate any potential health risks and better design a workout to suit you.
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) will be calculated based on height and weight. A high BMI can mean a higher risk for Type 2 diabetes

Please bring your NHS number.

After the health check, there will be an opportunity to discuss the results with the fitness professional, who will provide personalised advice on how to lower the risk of future problems and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

There are many chronic and genetic health conditions that can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle.

An NHS Health Check can help by assessing the risk of developing these health problems. The fitness team at East Riding Leisure can then help give personalised advice on how to reduce the risk.
