What is self referral?

NHS Health Check programme (offered in the East, South and Central)
This is a mandatory programme currently offered by GP Practices in the most deprived areas in Haringey with the aim to prevent heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and diabetes by inviting those between the ages of 40-74 for a check and provide support in reducing the level of risk by altering health behaviours. The checks are offered to residents who have no pre-existing diagnosis/history of diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, familial hypercholesterolemia, chronic kidney disease, stroke, peripheral arterial disease or Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA).
General practices will be responsible for sending out invitation letters and making appointments for the health checks. If you are yet to receive an invite, contact your GP practice directly.
