Do you have any of the following “risk factors” that may increase your chances of developing a chronic disease?


  • High blood pressure

  • Sedentary lifestyle

  • Overweight

  • Poor or unbalanced diet

  • Smoker

  • Elevated cholesterol

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can access the same health check between the ages  of 15-54 if they meet the patient eligibility requirements.


If so, you might want to consider seeing your Doctor about a health check.


The purpose of the health check is to focus on the needs of people around 45 to 49 years of age who are at risk of developing a chronic disease. The aim of the health check is to assist with the detection and prevention of chronic diseases and enable early intervention strategies to be put in place where appropriate.
