NHS Health Check service directory update

The NHS Health Check service directory was launched a year ago on NHS Choices. It is one of Public Health England’s key supports for the programme as set out in Department of Health’s ‘Living well for longer: national support for local action to reduce premature avoidable mortality’.

The successful launch included 125 local authorities, opting-in to have a service profile detailing their local NHS Health Check programme. Every month an average of 6,000 searches are completed by members of the public looking to find out how they can access their local NHS Health Check service.

This national campaign provides an excellent route to increase population awareness and engagement on local NHS Health Check services. It is therefore important for commissioners to ensure their local authority profile data is correct and reflects their current service. You can search for your local authority profile here.

Can’t find your local authority profile?

The service directory has 80% local authority coverage, so it is likely your local authority has not yet opted-in. Commissioners can opt-in or request further information by email to nhshealthchecks.mailbox@phe.gov.uk

Need to update your local authority profile?

Commissioners have the opportunity to update their local authority profile every month by email to nhshealthchecks.mailbox@phe.gov.uk .

If you are a provider of a local NHS Health Check service and would like to be included in the directory, please speak to your commissioner.
