Time to book a Heart Health Check?
Most importantly, your GP and nurse can support you to lower this risk. A Heart Health Check is a 20-minute check-up with your GP to assess your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Why should you get a Heart Health Check?Heart Health Checks can detect issues with your heart health. Coronary heart disease is usually the underlying cause of a heart attack, which is Australia’s number one cause of death. Coronary heart disease is caused when the arteries leading to the heart become hardened or narrow.
One Australian has a heart attack or stroke every four minutes. Many people may not be aware of their risk factors for heart disease. Also, some risk factors like high blood pressure or high cholesterol can be silent.
Who needs a Heart Health Check?One fifth of Australians aged 45–74 years have a high chance of having a heart attack or stroke in the next five years.
Anyone 45 years and over or 30 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should have a regular Heart Health Check with their doctor.
What are the benefits of a Heart Health Check? Understanding your risk of having a heart attack or stroke is the first step in lowering the risk. Your GP or nurse will give you advice on the immediate steps you can take to lower your risk of heart disease.
How much does a Heart Health Check cost?Since April 2019, Heart Health Checks have been covered by Medicare and are free at practices that bulk bill this service.
