Why should I get a regular health check?
Having a regular health check can keep your health heading in the right direction. It can help prevent small health problems from becoming big ones.
Without knowing these things, your health might get worse and this is not good for you, your family or your community.
It’s important to have a regular health check to stay healthy and strong, even when you feel well.

What happens at a health check?
Our Aboriginal Health Practitioner will have a yarn about your health, the health of your family and ask about any concerns you may have.
During the appointment, we will check and ask questions about your; height and weight, blood pressure, nutrition and exercise, medical history, eyes, ears, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, medications and immunisation.
The health check will identify services you may need and actions you can take to improve your overall health and wellbeing. This may take 45 minutes to complete.
