At Illawarra Medical Centre, we provide free* health assessments for those aged 45-49 years old, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and people over the age of 75 years old.
Health Assessments are performed by one of our Practice Nurses and reviewed by your Doctors and allow for the identification of any existing or potential health issues, so that you can make better informed decisions about your health.
Most health assessments take between 20-40 minutes to complete and involve a number of questions relating to your general health and wellbeing and a series of simple tests. These may include:
*The cost of these assessments are covered by Medicare, however any required investigations identified by the health assessment may incur a cost. If you are not eligible to receive Medicare, then a standard consult fee will apply, charged dependent upon the time the assessment takes to complete.
