Introduce a Site Health dashboard widget

The [Health Check plugin](https://github.com/wordpress/health-check] has been testing out the introduction of a dashbaord widget for some time now, to give the user a quick glance to see if they need to address anything upon logging in (of course dismissible like any other dashboard widget).

The widget relies on the last collected result of a health check, this means it also adds a WP_Cron event that runs the checks once a week (or whenever the Site Health check page is triggered).

Migrating this over would help gently nudge users towards fixing any critical issues on their site, be this core-provided checks, or plugins/themes not working as intended that have implemented checks to help users stay on top.
