Your car needs a MOT, how about you?

As part of our support and commitment to all staff to look after your health and wellbeing, the CCG is offering eligible staff a free NHS Health Check.


Friday 18 October


St Margaret’s Hospital, Orchard Day Room

How do I book?

Call 0800 022 4524 and select Option 1 to book a time or drop-in between 10am and 4pm

How do I find out if I am eligible?

If you are aged between 40-74, registered with an Essex GP or live in Essex (excluding Southend), haven’t had one in the last five years and fulfill the following:

  • Not taking blood pressure or cholesterol tablets
  • Not known to have diabetes
  • Never had a stroke
  • Never had a heart attack
  • Not diagnosed with coronary heart disease, or heart failure
  • Not diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease
  • Not diagnosed with chronic kidney disease
  • Not diagnosed with atrial fibrillation

Why should I have one?

Having your free health check can help prevent a number of serious illnesses and conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and dementia.  If you are not eligible to have one here (for example if you live outside of Essex) do check with your local GP and ask them if you can have one.
