Once you've had your NHS Health Check, your healthcare professional will discuss the results with you. You'll be given advice and support to help you lower your risk and maintain or improve your vascular health. But you don't have to wait until your NHS Health Check appointment to make healthy changes.

This guide explains what happens at the check, when and how you get one, and how to lower your risk.
