Services Database Community Pharmacy NHS Health Checks Programme

Service ID



The aim of the NHS Health Checks Programme is to increase accessibility to NHS Health Checks for the residents of East Sussex and subsequently improve recognition and prevention of key health conditions.
Anyone within the eligibility criteria is entitled to an NHS Health Check every five years. A patient's cardiovascular risk score is calculated, which works out their risk of cardiovascular disease over the next ten years. In the case of results being outside the normal range, these must be communicated to the patient and GP via PharmOutcomes on the day of the NHS Health Check.
