45 - 49 Year Old Health Check

 

 

If you are aged between 45 - 49 years old and are at risk of a chronic condition you may be eligible for a free health check-up.

 

These health assessments are for patients that our doctors believe are at risk of developing a chronic disease due to the identification of specific risk factor(s).

A health assessment in these years can promote necessary changes to lifestyle, delaying or avoiding the onset of chronic disease.


Risk Factors for chronic disease include:
 

  • High cholesterol

  • Alcohol use

  • Excess weight

  • Physical inactivity

  • Smoking

  • Poor nutrition

  • High blood pressure

  • Impaired glucose metabolism

  • A family history of a chronic disease (asthma, cardiovascular disease, mental health condition, arthritus, cancer, diabetes mellitus etc.)

 

The health check incorporates
 

  • A patient history
     

  • Any necessary physical investigations and examinations
     

  • An overall assessment of the patient’s health
     

  • Evaluation of the patient’s willingness to make changes to their lifestyle
     

  • Advice and information as well as strategies to achieve these behavioural and lifestyle changes;
     

  • A record of the health assessment, and the offer of a written report including any recommendations
