In keeping with the high level of preventative care we provide at East Ryde Family Medical Practice, we also offer the Government recommended 45 – 49 year old health check.
This health check focuses on preventative care for patients in this age bracket, the aim is to detect and prevent chronic disease and enable early intervention.
The health check would include:
- Past Medical history
- Family History
- Social History
- Physical activity
- Mental Health
- Body weight, height, waist, BMI
- Blood Pressure
- Skin Check
Tests Taken / Ordered
- Fasting Blood Test
- Cervical Screen Test
Once the information has been gathered, your GP will identify any health issues and recommend the appropriate follow up, provide advice and strategies to achieve a better lifestyle.
Please expect to be at the surgery for at least an hour for your initial appointment, and it is encouraged you return for your results appointment.
When booking your appointment please inform our reception staff that it is for a 45-49 health check so an appropriate amount of time can be allocated (we recommend booking an early morning appointment so that a fasting blood test can be completed)
