Is my diet affecting my health? Am I drinking too much? Am I active enough? Getting personalised health information, whether to address specific concerns or just see how you are faring, can be tricky. The LifeCheck (www.nhs.uk/lifecheck) tool asks you a small number of questions about your age and lifestyle which generates an individual health profile, and health tips tailored to your specific needs. You will then be able to set achievable goals to improve your health and wellbeing, and get to relevant, reliable advice and information on the NHS web site.
Designed for all ages from newborns to grandparents, the user-friendly tool now combines an upgraded and extended version of three existing tools Baby LifeCheck (5 to 8 months), Teen LifeCheck (12-15 years) and Mid-LifeCheck (over 40s).
