The NHS Health Check programme aims to help prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain types of dementia.
Everyone between the ages of 40 and 74, who has not already been diagnosed with one of these conditions or have certain risk factors, will be invited (once every five years) to have a check to assess their risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes and will be given support and advice to help them reduce or manage that risk.

The following corrections were made to Q1 2014/15:
|Local authority||appointments offered||appointments received|
Update [2 Sep 2014]: There has been a correction to Q4 2013/14 data on offers for Redcar and Cleveland, these have been revised from 7964 to 2903. The impact of this correction is that it has reduced the proportion of offers issued and increased the uptake for the local authority, and all areas it belongs to.
Removal of the Healthier Lives profiles
On December 4th 2018 all the Healthier Lives profiles were removed and their web address redirected to a corresponding fingertips profile. This decision was taken based on work conducted within PHE Health Improvement Directorate which highlighted the significant level of duplication that existed between the two resources, but with less functionality available for users in the former. Consequently, users of the NHS Health Check Healthier Lives page are being redirected to the NHS Health Check profile.
