Regular health assessments help keep you fit and well!
A health assessment with your GP is a great way to spot potential health issues early and to keep on top of any medical issues before they start to cause you problems. Together, we can assess your risk of long-term health issues and rule out any physical signs, such as high blood pressure. We can also order bloods or other tests to see how your cholesterol and sugar levels are tracking.
Once you’ve had your health assessment, you’ll understand how well your health is stacking up and what areas you may need to work on. You and your GP can agree specific health goals and develop a plan to achieve these goals in 2019.
