Yesterday I grabbed an NHS leaflet on the topic but coincidentally it came up in a PM. Basically for the over forties who have not been otherwise diagnosed with one of the specified conditions, we are entitled to a (free) health check or MOT at the age of 40 and upward, every 5 years. Helping to prevent by catching things early, diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, strokes and dementia. The surgery will not always contact you the individual. But if you ask then they should comply.
