The Ardens NHS Health Checks Searches has been designed to help practices audit and report on details of NHS Health Checks, as well as enabling you to identify which patients need to be invited in for their NHS Health Check.


To locate the searches, navigate to the Population Reporting module > Ardens Searches > 1.3 Ardens Admin Searches > NHS Health Check Invitation Searches folder:



The patients eligible have been broken down by those with additional risk factors (e.g. those with a mental health condition, those with a QRISK score more than 10, those with a BMI more than 30) and no additional risk factors.



Each are further broken down by communication methods:

  • Send 1st Invitation: SMS - if the patient has a mobile phone number on their record and have not declined contact by SMS.
  • Send 1st Invitation: Email - if they do not have a mobile phone details (or have declined contact by SMS), but do have an email address and consent for emailing.
  • Send 1st Invitation Post: if they have neither of the above, they will display in this list.


Please note - the 'Due 2nd Invitations' searches will return patients that have been sent a 1st invitation more than 14 days and have not been coded as a health check completed.
