Free NHS Health Check Service for Doncaster Residents in partnership with Randox Health
From February 5th, eligible Doncaster residents aged between 40-70 will be able to book a free NHS health check.
The health checks aim to detect the risk of an individual having a heart attack, stroke, or developing Type 2 diabetes over the next decade. In its first five years, the NHS Health Check initiative is estimated to have prevented over 2,500 heart attacks or strokes as a result of people receiving preventative treatment following their Health Check.
Following the Health Check, the results will be made available to GP’s for inclusion on patient medical records to enable further follow-up if required. Not only does the Health Check enable prevention and mitigation through the early identification of serious illness, but it also offers onward support if required to assist with lifestyle modification on issues including smoking, alcohol, and weight management.
This service is specifically focussed on providing checks to patients at high risk, therefore selected patients will receive a letter on behalf of their GP inviting them to avail of the check. The dedicated NHS Health Check Clinic t Cussins House, 22-28 Wood Street is situated conveniently in central Doncaster benefitting from excellent accessibility and transport links. In addition to this, for those that cannot access the city centre, appointments will be provided at a range of community locations across the borough.
