Wellbeing checks and appointments
Types of appointments available
Appointments are available with a friendly Wellbeing Advisor at Horsham District Council, Parkside, Chart Way, Horsham and at our hub in Steyning. If you are unable to travel to either of these locations we will try to arrange an appointment at a venue local to you.
Wellbeing Advisor appointments
The Wellbeing team provides free one-to-one advice, guidance and support to make lifestyle changes such as losing weight, eating well, becoming more active, reducing alcohol intake and stopping smoking.

NHS Health Checks
NHS Health Check is a national programme in England for people between the ages of 40 and 74. It is a free check to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease. You would have a finger-prick cholesterol test, your blood pressure taken and discuss your lifestyle and family history. This check is offered because everybody is at risk of developing these health problems, having an NHS Health Check can help you to lower your chance of developing them.
You can have an NHS Health Check once every five years and most people in the age range are eligible but there are some exceptions. If you already have any of the conditions mentioned above or you are already being treated for high cholesterol or high blood pressure then you will not be eligible.
