Sandra Gidley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many(a) women and (b) men pensioners in 2000–01 broken down by regional health authority completed a free health check on retirement through the pilot scheme announced in the NHS Plan; and if he will make a statement. [46282]

Yvette Cooper

None. The first pre retirement health check pilots began in 2001–2. They are focused on the health needs of people who have not yet retired, in the 50–65 age group, many still in active employment, although some retired people are also involved in them.
