Over 75 Health Check




The Over 75 Health Check is an initiative to improve overall health and well-being in the community.

Its aim is to improve the care and support given to patients aged 75 or over. Thorpe Road Surgery is very supportive of the scheme and will provide Health Checks to improve early diagnosis and health screening.

All patients who are over 75 and do not already attend the surgery for an annual review are encouraged to book a health check with the nurse in line with their month of birth.

The nurse will provide assessment and screening of your health and social care issues based on questions and measurements. Following this, you will receive personalised advice and if needed, an onward referral or signposting to appropriate support services.

If you'd like to arrange an Over 75 Health Check, please get in touch with the surgery.
