The NHS Health Check is a sophisticated check a patient’s heart health, working out the risk of developing some of the most disabling – but preventable – illnesses that also directs patients who need it to the best source of addressing any symptoms.
The NHS Health Check is affectionately known by our patients as a “midlife MOT”. It checks that some of your body’s most important systems are running smoothly.
Crucially, your NHS Health Check can detect potential problems before they do real damage. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented.
The NHS Health Check assesses the risk of developing these health problems and gives patients personalised advice on how to reduce it.
It’s free of charge, including any follow up tests or appointments.
How do people get an NHS Health Check?
The NHS Health Check is aimed at adults aged 40-74. If you fall in to this age group and are not already being reviewed by your GP for a circulatory condition you can expect to be invited for an NHS Health Check every five years.
NHS Health Checks are provided by Calderdale GP practices under contract with Pennine GP Alliance.
Community place is a dedicated service for patients who are due to leave hospital for their own homes, but are awaiting final preparations for their departure to be completed. This is currently a pilot service, with a limited number of beds, and your discharge coordinator will discuss Community Place with you, if this is an option.
Within the Community Place, we promote independence. You will be encouraged to participate in activities such as personal care, walking to the dining room, and making your drinks, if you are able. These activities form a vital part of regaining and keeping your independence.
Community Place is provided in partnership with Calderdale and Huddersfield Foundation Trust, NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council, Pennine GP Alliance and Beechwood Medical Centre.
