Preventative Health Care
At the Elmwood Medical Centre our aim is to help you to be proactive in keeping yourself well, both now and for the future.
We encourage you to take an active interest in your own health and wellbeing, to minimise the risks of a range of chronic diseases and live your life to the fullest.
Preventative health checks can assist you and your doctor to keep watch for signs that your health may be at risk in the future via regular checks to screen for:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Eyesight and hearing issues
- Skin cancer
We offer the following health assessments:
- Health assessments for patients ages 45-49 years old
- Annual health checks for patients aged 75+
- Mental Health Plans
We can also coordinate team care arrangements for patients who have chronic or complex conditions. We can refer you to and liaise with a wide range of local allied health service providers such as podiatrists, osteopaths, psychologists and others who can provide valuable input, care and management to help you achieve optimal health outcomes.
Our doctors will let you know if you are eligible for one of these plans, or you can talk to our receptionists to arrange one of these health assessments at your next visit. You may wish to book a long consultation for these discussions to maximise your time with your doctor.
