Health Assessments

45-49 Health Assessments

Patients aged between 45 and 49 years old, who are registered in the database, are eligible for a health assessment. The Australian Federal Government supports general practices in offering a one-time, free health check for individuals in this age group who may already have one or more known risk factors for developing chronic health conditions like diabetes or heart disease.

We provide a thorough and all-encompassing health assessment service that evaluates a patient’s physical, mental, and social well-being. This assessment is particularly beneficial for patients with complex care needs, as it offers a more comprehensive understanding of their overall health.

The primary objective of this health check is to identify and prevent the onset of chronic diseases, while also initiating early intervention strategies when necessary. By detecting potential health issues early on, we can implement appropriate measures to support optimal health and well-being.

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • History of smoking
  • Lack of physical activity
  • High alcohol consumption
  • Extra weight
  • Poor diet
  • Family history of disease

By identifying and addressing these risk factors, we can work with you to take proactive steps to improve your health and reduce the likelihood of developing associated diseases.

  • Reviewing and updating your medical history with the general practice nurse.
  • Coordinating necessary tests such as blood pressure monitoring, mammograms for women, or blood tests.
  • Sharing information about identified risk factors.
  • Collaborating on strategies such as referrals to other healthcare professionals or recommending exercise programs that promote a healthier lifestyle and potentially reduce the risk of future diseases.

Health assessments are crucial in identifying potential risks and offering early intervention opportunities to maintain well-being.

There is no charge for these consults.

75 + Health Assessments

At Erindale Medical & Health, patients who are over the age of 75 years are offered the opportunity to have an annual Health Assessment to help maintain good health. The health assessment is an opportunity for your doctor to complete a thorough check-up of your medical, physical, psychological and social health in a structured way. 

This is also an opportunity for you to raise any concerns that you may have relating to your health with your doctor and nursing team. The knowledgeable nursing staff can advise and guide you in obtaining home care services to assist you in staying in your own home for longer. For example, Meals on Wheels, and having your house fitted for handrails. 

This type of appointment is offered yearly, but should the need arise for assessment sooner, please discuss with either a nurse or doctor.

There is no charge for these consults.
