Primary care trusts are responsible for commissioning services to deliver the NHS Health Check programme in a way that meets the needs of their local population. They choose different approaches to deliver the checks depending on the characteristics of their local population. No assessment at a national level has been made of how many men in different age groups have taken up the offer of an NHS Health Check.

The number of eligible people between 40 and 74 offered and receiving a NHS Health Check in 2011-12 has been published on the Department's website at:
