Take 10 minutes for a NHS health check

Did you know that if you are 40-74 years old you are entitled to a free NHS health check every five years with your GP? It is a simple health check-up for adults and is designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. We know that it isn’t always easy to find time to go to the GP, therefore two pharmacies in the borough also offer the checks: C Goode Pharmacy in King Street, Twickenham (020 8892 1614) and Kanset Pharmacy in Ashburnham Road, Richmond (020 8948 0601). We know that unpaid carers are the backbone of the care system, but it is important to take a break and not put your own health on the line. Here is more information search NHS health checks.
