45-49 Year Old Health Checks. As we get older, many of us become more vulnerable to illness. To reduce this, we would like to invite you to make an appointment to come into the Kariong Medical Centre for a health check. It is for everyone aged between 45 and 49 who may be at risk of developing a health complaint, like diabetes or heart problems.

The aim of the health check is to help find, prevent or lessen the effect of disease. After all, it is better to avoid disease than treat it. This health check will give us the opportunity to look at your lifestyle and medical/family history to find out if you are at risk.

Risk factors may include high blood pressure, lack of physical activity, extra weight, unbalanced diet, high cholesterol, family history of disease (e.g. cancer, heart diseases or diabetes) and smoking. There is no cost for this service as it is covered by Medicare.

When booking your appointment, please advise the reception staff that it is for a 45-49 Year Old Health Check so they can allocate enough time for the nurse and doctor to see you.
