Free NHS Health Checks

We are hardworking advocates of our community. We strive to offer facilities, programmes, and services that benefit and improve the physical and mental well being of the community, that’s why we’re introducing Free NHS Health Checks.

If you’re aged 40 to 74, you can get your free NHS Health Check by simply contacting us.


Through Impulse Leisure, you can now request a free NHS Health Check in Thurrock, Essex. For adults aged 40 to 74 who have not had a stroke or pre-existing health condition, the health checks can help spot early signs of kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, dementia, and more.

The older you are, the higher the risk of developing one of these conditions. So, get your free NHS health check with us today - it could save your life.


At your NHS Health Check, a healthcare professional will carry out tests to look for early signs of several conditions. The check will take around 20 to 30 minutes.

It’s unlikely you will be diagnosed with a health condition, so don’t worry, but remember that prevention is key and could save your life.

If the health check uncovers any issues, you will be offered advice and support, including:

  • Helping you stop smoking
  • Working with you to improve your diet and manage cholesterol
  • Reduce your blood pressure
  • Manage your weight
  • Be more active
  • Reduce your stress
  • Reduce the amount of alcohol you drink

To find out more, feel free to contact a member of our friendly team who can help answer any questions and put your mind at ease.


You’re entitled to a free NHS Health Check if you haven’t had one in the last five years.

  • Atrial fibrillation
