NHS LIFE CHECK

The LifeCheck tool has now been merged into a single user-friendly tool, which now covers all age groups for a quick online health assessment.

The new tool is very user-friendly and concise. At the start of the assessment, you just enter your gender and age, and the tool will generate questions and advice based on the answers provided about your health and lifestyle.  It's not a lengthy health assessment, which frees up more time for you to look into the tips and guidance on how to improve your health.  You can even print off your results, so you keep a record as you make small changes towards a healthier lifestyle! Click here for the NHS Life Check tool.
