Health Checks and Assessments

... for 45-49 year olds and over 75 years

Health checks are a good opportunity to make sure everything is going well with your health. They highlight those areas that may need some attention to improve health and to try and prevent problems later in life. They might identify an issue you were unaware of that needs attending to.

45-49 year old checks are available as a one off health check for individuals in the 45-49 year old age range.

At Ocean Family Medicine we offer an initial appointment with our nurse to gather some basic information. This might include an ECG (heart tracing), spirometry (lung function testing), urine test, blood test and bowel cancer test. We then offer a follow up appointment with your GP a week later. This appointment will include questions to identify any possible problems, a full examination, results of any tests performed and a discussion about general health issues specific to you. Both these appointment are bulk billed.

75 year old checks are available annually for everyone aged 75 year or over. Although you may already be seeing your GP regularly for various issues the health check is an opportunity to focus on areas of your health that are not discussed at these appointments.
