NHS Health Checks

If you are aged between 40 and 75 you may have been invited in for your NHS health check from your GP. If you have already had your check then you may have been advised by your GP to become more active as a result of a Physical Activity questionnaire.

Many people avoid visiting their doctor for fear that a health concern will be confirmed. However, many worry themselves unnecessarily and troubling thoughts are shown to be unfounded.

Simply telling your doctor of your intention to increase your activity and seeking advice on whether anything in particular should be avoided would be a good start. A visit to a qualified physiotherapist could also be a good idea. A well qualified member of your local gym staff should also be able to help.
