Read how Haelo, commissioned by Salford City Council from 2013-2016, used improvement science methodologies to increase the uptake of NHS Health Checks in Salford.
Levels of deprivation and poor health in Salford are higher compared with the national average. Whilst premature mortality due to heart disease has fallen, rates are again still higher than average. The NHS Health Check acts as a mid-life MOT for those aged 40-74, providing a cardiovascular disease risk assessment and follow up prevention programme.
