The best way to manage your health is to attend your local GP practice and have regular check-ups.
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 personalised health care plan, which may include referral to other services and advice.
At Tristar Medical Group, we put a strong emphasis on preventative care. An easy way to stay on top of your health is to attend your local GP practice and have regular check-ups.
At Tristar we offer the following preventative health checks:
People aged 75 and over
This yearly, in-depth assessment is designed to identify any health issues which may be preventable or amenable to early treatment to improve health and quality of life.
Type 2 diabetes risk evaluation
Available for those aged 40-49 years to determine their diabetic risk and provide lifestyle education to decrease risk.
People between the age of 45-49
A health assessment is recommended to anyone within the age bracket who is at risk of developing a chronic disease. Factors which may put you in this category include smoking, obesity, high blood pressure or having a history of chronic disease.
Men’s and Women’s health checks
Screening is an important part of preventative health. There are many screening tests and examinations a healthy person can undertake to help with detection of diseases such as bowel cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Speak to your GP – they are able to carry out some tests and can refer you to specialist services.
