Looking after your health as you get older
Many of us over time become more vulnerable to illnesses. In order to reduce this risk, our practice offers a Free Yearly Health Assessment to all patients over the age of 75.
The health assessment provides a structured way of identifying health issues or risk factors and conditions that are potentially preventable or may require further health management.
The health assessment involves:
- Information collection, including taking a patient history and undertaking or arranging examinations and investigations as required;
- Making an overall assessment, recommending appropriate interventions; providing advice and health information.
- Measurement of the patient’s vital signs, medications, continence, immunisation status, patient’s physical function, psychological function (including the patient’s cognition and mood) and social function.
