PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE NURSE FOR YOUR HEALTH CHECK

What is an NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

Patient Participation Group

We are actively seeking more people to join our on line group if you are interested please email  westbury.medicalcentre@nhs.net or phone 01743 884727 and please email us with any thoughts/ suggestions that you would like us to consider
