NHS Health Checks available at Honley

We are offering NHS health Checks at Honley Surgery to patients aged 40-74years old. 

This involves an appointment with the Health care assistant for weight and height measurements, blood pressure check, cholesterol and diabetes blood tests. You will be booked for a telephone consultation with the nurse for your results and further advice. 

The aim of NHS Health Checks is to try to prevent strokes and heart attacks. These are usually caused by atheroma which is a fatty build-up in the blood vessels. There are many ways we can reduce our risk of developing these problems by stopping smoking, eating a healthy diet, reducing salt intake, regular physical activity, keeping your weight and waist size down and drinking alcohol within recommended limits.
