Why You Need That Annual Health Check

By: | Tags: , , | Comments: 0 | January 6th, 2023

Start 2023 the best way you can for your health, by making your annual health check appointment with one of the Doctors here at Goodwin Drive Family Medical Centre.

Having regular health checks with your GP can help identify any early signs of health issues or concerns. And finding these problems early improves the chances of effectively treating any concerns or implementing strategies to minimise onset.

That’s why, no matter your age, family history, existing medical conditions and/or lifestyle choices it’s a good idea to visit your GP regularly to:

  • Monitor current or emerging medical concerns
  • Check your risk of future medical conditions
  • Prompt you to maintain a healthy lifestyle and support positive lifestyle choices
  • Stay on-top of vaccinations, medications and referrals you may need

At Goodwin Drive Family Medical Centre the doctors and allied health professionals are here to support you. Making the effort to have an annual health check can also provide you a chance to assess your own health (emotional, physical and mental), habits and lifestyle to make positive change and improvements that will support you and your family.

Please note, allied health services available at Goodwin Drive Family Medical Centre include:

  • Podiatry
  • Psychology / Mental Health Social Work

In addition to the above, we are also fortunate to have Dr Tony O’Neill as a visiting specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon to our practice, and you can speak with your GP should you require a referral.
