Be Bolton, Be Healthy, be Happy -Bolton Orcha Website
NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and our Health and Care Partners in Bolton have partnered up with ORCHA (the Organisation for the Review of Care and Health Applications) to provide this dedicated site for people across Bolton to solve this very problem of which app is right for you.
ORCHA carries out independent and impartial reviews of health and care related apps, and you will see all that information clearly displayed throughout this website. You will know that any apps shown on this site have been through a good review process, and can be confident in choosing the best app for you.

Are You between 40-74yrs?
Everyone is at risk of developing Heart Disease, Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes or even Kidney Disease but these diseases can often be prevented.
Primary Care in Bolton have been running a programme via the Bolton Quality Contract to identify patients as being at 'High Risk' through having an NHS Health Check. NHS Health Checks are aimed at people between the ages of 40-74 years that do not already have a history of CHD, Stroke, PVD, Familial Hypercholestrolaemia and Diabetes.
Those patients that do not suffer from the above should have an NHS health check every 5 years.
Please contact reception to make an appointment with our Health Improvement Practitioner, Practice Nurse or HCA (Help us, Help you!) - NHS health checks
