Health Checks & Assessments
At West Pennant Hills Medical Centre we offer a variety of health checks and assessments for our patients, young and old, which will help to monitor your health and identify any issues as they arise. Early diagnosis is the key to better health, so it’s important to ensure you always get checked out.
Kids’ health check: Children’s health checks include monitoring development and normal milestones, immunisation and health promotion. Healthy Kids Checks for 3-4 year olds can assess readiness for school and provide an opportunity for early screening for visual acuity, hearing, coordination as well as motor skills and other areas of development. If any issues are identified, we can then address these.
45 to 49 health check: This comprehensive health check will ensure that any emerging health problems are identified early on, so they can be treated accordingly.
For over 75 years health assessment: A comprehensive annual health check is recommended for all people aged over 75 to identify any health issues and optimise quality of life. Areas assessed may include but are not limited to lifestyle, mobility, medication, nutrition, exercise, safety in the home, care arrangements and support networks. Education is also a big part of this, and our nurses can provide advice on fall prevention and other things that will help to improve health and lifestyle.
Chronic Disease and GP Managed Care Plans:
Comprehensive and individualised care plan can ensure that all aspects of chronic disease are managed including goals to achieve optimal health. Chronic conditions including diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, arthritis, chronic pain are amongst the most common conditions that can be supported with the help of a care plan. Some care plan patients are eligible for referral to allied health providers at a subsidised cost.
Immunisations and Vaccination
We are a local COVID vaccine provider and we offer a comprehensive service including advice and most vaccinations. Please make plans and see us so that the appropriate vaccinations can be given in time for them to be effective while you are overseas.
Now a Yellow Fever registered clinic, West Pennant Hills Centre can administer both overseas and local vaccinations for your convenience. Our practice nurse can visit your workplace to do this as required or your staff can visit our clinic by appointment.
Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Programs should be performed in May/June as the vaccines take up to two weeks to become effective. Unfortunately, the virus changes each year, thus, vaccinations are required at 12 monthly intervals. Meanwhile, before travelling overseas, it’s important to check as soon as possible if you need a travel vaccination, and if so, we can administer this for you.
If you are planning a trip to Bali, Europe or anywhere local or overseas, and would like to have traveller vaccinations prior to your trip, or would like to know about ‘Dos and Don’ts’ during your stay, or if you have any health concern after your journey, doctors at WPH Medical Centre can help you.
