It is easier than ever for people aged forty to seventy-four to get a free NHS health check in Oxfordshire, with the service now available in even more locations.
Health Checks Oxfordshire is now providing free NHS health checks on behalf of Oxfordshire County Council at convenient community-based locations across the county, including libraries. This is in support of existing GP practice provision, making it easier than ever to get one.
NHS health checks are funded by Oxfordshire County Council’s public health team, which exists to improve the health of local people and protect them from preventable health issues – helping local residents live safe and healthy lives and play an active role in their communities.
Everyone eligible will be invited for a free NHS health check once every five years (apart from those already seeing their GP for certain conditions).
