Summary of findings: Seven papers (five studies) met the inclusion criteria regarding reporting information around uptake or increasing uptake within CVD screening/Health Checks. All of these were studies from England. There is limited evidence of the demographic and health factors that impact on NHS Health Check uptake and from a systems perspective those GP practices that are most successful at attracting people to take up the Health Check were small. From this review a number of recommendations can be made (see page 18-19) around potential ways of increasing uptake of NHS Health Checks in Salford. However, it is also suggested more qualitative research is needed to understand the views of those invited to and who have had Health Checks in relation to some of the issues raised through this review.
