Annual health check-ups are a great way to take stock of your health and identify factors which may be putting you at a higher risk.
Supporting You at All Life Stages
There is no standard health check-up for anyone as family history, pre-existing illness and medication that you are on can change the review intervals. Various health checks are available based on your medical condition, age and ethnicity – please discuss what is recommended for you with your doctor.
Basics such as blood pressure, body mass index (BMI – height and weight) and waist size are important basic measurements that should be recorded for everyone on a regular basis. Depending on your medical history, family history and pre-existing condition the doctor might add few more things to the above standard list.
The Australian Government funds the annual recommended health assessment for the age group of 75 years and over.
