Since 1 November 2020 CQRS has been managed by the NHS commissioning support units. Learn more about the services CQRS will offer. 

Purpose and outline

This information will be extracted in June 2018 using the General Practice Extraction Service run by NHS Digital.

NHS Digital will be using patient records, held securely by NHS Digital, to analyse information about people who have been invited for and attended an NHS Health Check, and the numbers of people who have been invited for but not attended an NHS Health Check since 2009.

PHE will be using information from records for patients aged 40-74 years (the age group that the NHS Health Check is aimed at), and people aged 18-39 years who have been invited for and/or attended an NHS Health Check. This will provide information about cases where people may have been invited and/or attended an NHS Health Check before reaching the eligible age of 40.
