NHS Health Checks

North Somerset residents aged 40-74 with no pre-existing conditions are encouraged have an NHS Health Check every 5 years. This will check their general health, discover any vascular risk they may have and encourage healthy lifestyles which will keep them fit, healthy and happy for many years. People will either be invited by their GP to have a health check or can ask their GP for one. Some pharmacies, workplaces and community venues also deliver Health Checks. For more information on Health Checks visit the NHS Health Check webpages and for details of getting a Health Check in North Somerset visit North Somerset Council's website.

Seasonal flu jabs are now available and doctors are encouraging people to get booked in if they are in a higher risk group.
