NHS Health Checks

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40 to 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. These checks consist of 2 appointments, the first being a 10 minute blood test appointment with a blood pressure taken and the second one is a 20 minute follow up appointment with one of the Health Care assistants. These appointments are to be booked at the same time. Once you have booked these you will be sent a tx message with a link to our website to complete a questionnaire in time for the second part of your review. Please let the receptionist know if you do not have a mobile or are unable to access the internet as you will need to collect the appropriate form.

To complete the form please visit the home page of our website and click on the green tile labelled “NHS Health Check Questionnaire”

Stop Smoking Advice and Services 

It is never too late to stop smoking, if you are serious about stopping we can provide you with 1:1 smoking cessation advice or we can provide help and information about the local smoking cessation group where you can get support from fellow smokers who wish to give up.

  • Smoking kills over 100,000 people per year in the United Kingdom.
  • Smokers are more likely to get ill and die earlier than non-smokers.
  • Nicotine is ten times more addictive than heroin.

The Smoking Cessation Group has a number of tips to help you stop:

  • Plan your attempt to quit smoking
  • Pick a date and keep to it
  • Support from family and friends is vital
  • Reward yourself with ‘treats’ from the money you save
  • Always take one day at a time
  • Be positive

Your doctor will be able to advise you about Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). NRT increases your chances of quitting successfully. The products are available on prescription.

1 to 1 smoking cessation help and advice is offered locally at Trinity Medical Centre by our Nurses and healthcare assistants. Please call to make an appointment.
