Your GP will conduct a complete health check that will look at your overall health and risk factors
Regular health checks will help identify and prevent any health issues early. Our GP’s can complete a health check that looks at your overall health and risk factors. This involves medical examinations and tests such as blood pressure, height, weight and blood tests.
By having a health check the doctor can develop a good healthcare plan specific to your needs, this may include referral to services and providing advice.
