Health Checks

A health assessment is recommended every year for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Health checks are recommended for men, women and children.  

They involve a general review of your health, such as physical, psychological and social wellbeing.  The check also recommends  preventative health care, education and other assistance you might need to improve your health and well being.

Health checks ensure any issues or concerns can be detected and diagnosed as early as possible and that early intervention can be put in place.

All of our health checks and services are performed by trained staff in a respectful and culturally-appropriate manner.

Our clinics are committed to preventative care and we may issue you with reminder notices or practice information via SMS.

Please advise the staff if you do not wish to participate in this program.
