More than 41,000 people were offered NHS health check appointments in the last year.

Hertfordshire County Council’s latest figures show a significant increase in the number of residents offered a NHS Health Check since the programme started in April 2009.

The NHS Health Check is given free to residents aged between 40 and 74 who do not already have a pre-existing condition and aims to identify those at risk of serious, but potentially avoidable, conditions such as diabetes, stroke and heart disease.
