Ceremony

The Awards will be held at a ceremony during the Primary Care Cardiovascular Journal Annual Conference in November, celebrating successes in providing NHS Health Checks.

Judges

Judges include the National Director of Public Health England and Chief Executive of HEART UK and other leaders promoting NHS Health Checks.

Millions of people are now receiving an NHS Health Check each year. The Awards showed how beneficial it is for teams to work together to drive uptake of the programme and increase follow-up. This helps us work towards our main aim of reducing the number of preventable diseases and deaths which are caused by high cholesterol and other cardiovascular risks factors.
