75 Year Old Annual Health Assessment

What is the 75 Year Old Annual Health Assessment?

A health assessment of an older person is an in-depth assessment of a patient aged 75 years and over. It provides a structured way of identifying health issues and conditions that are potentially preventable or amenable to interventions in order to improve health and/or quality of life.

An annual health assessment is offered by this clinic as a Government initiative on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Why should I have it?

A health assessment can be used to identify:

  • Health issues and conditions that are potentially preventable or amenable to interventions in order to improve your health and quality of life

Based on the results of the assessment, the Health Assessment Nurse will make recommendations to the patient’s regular doctor to implement interventions and investigations if required.

4 Year Old Health Check

What is the purpose of the 4 Year Old Health Check?

Prior to or in conjunction with your child’s 4 year old immunisation, you should make an appointment with the immunisation nurse to undergo the Healthy Kids Check. The purpose of the Healthy Kids Check is to ensure that every four year old in Australia has a basic health assessment to see if they are healthy, fit and ready to learn when they start school.

What is involved?

The Healthy Kids Check involves a 30-minute consultation with the child and their parent in order to collect, update and assess information regarding family and environmental factors, medical and social history, and lifestyle risk factors. Where appropriate, the immunisation nurse may refer the child to their regular doctor or other health professionals if medical interventions or investigations are required.
