Merton Health delivers health checks on behalf of the London Borough of Merton. Invites are made by your GP practice every 5 years for those that are eligible.
Health checks are designed to identify people between 40-74 who are at risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease or stroke. People over the age of 65 will also be told the symptoms of Dementia to lookout for.
For more information, please visit the NHS health check website.
