NHS Health Check
The NHS Health Check Program is a Public Health mandatory programme that aims to reduce CVD related morbidity and mortality. The focus is towards reducing CVD related health inequalities in areas of high deprivation.
The program has a clinical aspect for screening individual risk of CVD within the next 10 years (using qrisk2). The key focus is towards self-care and promotes positive dialogue between health care professionals and their patients to support lifestyle choice changes and to signpost people on to community based resources.
