Health Checks

Regular health checks and screenings can assist in the early detection and prevention of disease and illness. Recommendations for how often you should have a blood pressure, Cervical Screening Test, blood sugar, breast, skin and immunisation review vary depending on your life stage. If you have a higher risk of any condition due to your family history, or your own age and health, you’ll need to make your own health check plan with your doctor.
