Are you as old as you feel?

Life stages and cultural background are important influences on your health. Meroo Street Family Practice offers targeted Health Assessments to check both physical and psychological health for patients aged 45 to 49, over age 75, and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Regular assessments help us and our patients adopt good preventative health care routines and in many cases see if they qualify for specific Health Care programs. When a medical intervention is required, we clearly explain what we need to identify or investigate further.

Open or download these helpful checklists to see how we can help you with a Health Check.
