Health Check

Earlier awareness of risk factors may prevent the development of cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions.

Gippsland PHN and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) have been working with the National Vascular Disease Prevention Alliance (NVDPA) and Victorian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance (VCDPA) to develop a consumer health check to assess a person’s risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke) and chronic kidney disease.

The purpose of the health check is to:

  • Ask questions about risk factors common to stroke, heart and kidney disease as well as diabetes.
  • Direct people to general practice for further testing and/or direct people to local resources and programs supporting a healthier lifestyle.
  • Identify people who may already have type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and/or chronic kidney disease.
