Abstract Background
The NHS Health Checks Service is a statutory service commissioned by Public Health for the population of Southampton.The programme aims to promote and improve the early identification and management of individual behavioural and physiological risk factors for vascular disease and the other associated conditions. It also supports individuals to manage and reduce behavioural risks and associated conditions through information and evidence-based clinical interventions.
Method
The review included quantitative analysis of demographic and clinical data from patients who attended Health Checks, activity data from GP practice (to calculate uptake), qualitative data from surveys and conversations with primary care staff and patients who attended, as well as a literature review.
Results
In 2017/2018, 6583 patients attended a Health Check, just over 40% of those invited. They showed a large variety of demographic and clinical characteristics, particularly highlighting the relationship between deprivation and health risk. With Southampton being a city with above average deprivation, this had implication for demographic and clinical characteristics.
Conclusion
The implications of the findings of this service review will be discussed in this presentation, following discussion with local stakeholders, alongside wider findings about cardiovascular risk and behaviours in Southampton. An update from a mid-year review will also be presented, to asses the impact of the efforts to address issues raised above. Additionally, findings on referrals and brief interventions will be reported, alongside next steps for patients, primary care staff, and commissioners. External funding details
