Service Description

The NHS Health Check programme (England) aims to help reduce the incidence of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. It includes an alcohol assessment and, for the 65-74-year age group, dementia awareness-raising. Local authorities are legally responsible for the provision of the NHS Health Check, and staff that deliver it are expected to develop and demonstrate the competence and understanding needed to carry out the assessments and to communicate to the individual the results of the tests and their risk of cardiovascular disease. The objective of this qualification is to provide the learner with the knowledge and understanding to support them in carrying out an NHS Health Check assessment and to inform the client of the significance of their results and their risk, providing brief advice if required. It provides underpinning knowledge for the core competences and technical competences described in the NHS Health Check competence framework produced by Public Health England. No Entry Requirements
