Your GP will then ask you questions about your health and health issues, and you’ll receive a free mammogram if you’ve had one in the past three months.

Your test results will then be sent to your doctor.
Your health care team will then recommend a diet plan and a regular exercise regime.
Your GP will also give you advice on when to start taking your prescribed medication.
