Health and Wellbeing

Newcastle United Foundation knows how important it is to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle, but absolutely appreciates that sometimes a bit of extra support, information and opportunities to get involved in fun group activities can be really helpful!

What is an NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It’s designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

You can book an NHS Health Check at St James’ Park or we can come to your workplace or a community venue.

What happens during a Health Check?

An NHS Health Check takes about 20-30 minutes.

Our staff will ask you some simple questions about your lifestyle and family history, measure your height and weight, and take your blood pressure and do a blood test by using a small finger prick test.

Based on the results, they will be able to give you an idea of your chances of getting heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes.

What happens after the Health Check?

Your results are not held by the Foundation but sent to your local GP.

Our staff will be able to talk to you about how to lower your risk. This could include advice on improving your diet and the amount of physical activity you do or how to lose weight or stop smoking.

"I was unfit and doing no exercise. I got involved with the Foundation Health Programme and had a Health Check, where the staff were really helpful and informative. I started doing Walking Football, which has made a massive difference. I recommend anyone gets involved."
