The 1st, 2nd and 3rd invitation reports are based on ages 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70 and 74. The reports can be found by going to ‘Reporting > Clinical Reporting > Ardens >Contracts | NHS Health Checks’.

N.B. Patients with Learning Disabilities are excluded from the NHS Health Check invitations as they should have a CVD Risk & Lifestyle Assessment as part of their routine annual LD Health Check.

Status Alert

Following a recent survey, the majority of practices can also ask patients opportunistically for an NHS Health Check at any age between 40 to 74. If a patient is within this age range and have not had an NHS Health Check done (or declined) in the last 4 years, a ‘!!’ patient status alert icon will appear under their name.

If you wish to change this alert to just show on patients who are specifically aged 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65 and 74

  • Go to Setup > Data Output > Patient Status Alerts

  • Then search for an alert called ‘Invite for NHS Health Check’ and untick the enabled box to disable this alert

  • Then right click and copy this alert and change the trigger report to this report ‘Eligible - Consider NHS Health Check Invite as not done in last 5y (Age 40,45,50,55, 60, 65,70,74)’
