The study uses all 1100 practices across England contributing to QResearch database, which is linked at individual patient level to hospital admissions data, (Hospital Episode Statistics) and mortality records (Office for National Statistics).

We shall analyse the information collected at the NHS Health Check (2013-17) and additionally review aspects of mental health including antidepressant use. We shall also anaylse information from non-attendees and make appropriate comparisons between groups.
