BMI Kings Park Hospital Health assessments provide you with an excellent opportunity to understand your health. Our highly qualified team of GPs and health assessment nurses will review your health and offer practical advice on how you can make changes to help reduce your risk of developing common, but often preventable conditions such as: heart disease, stroke, diabetes and kidney disease.
Each assessment includes quality time with a specialist health assessment doctor or nurse to discuss your personal health concerns. After your health assessment you will receive advice based on your personalised consultation and results. This will include recommendations on the lifestyle changes you can make to improve your health and wellbeing. If needed, you will have quick access to further diagnostic tests and treatment, through our wider network of hospitals and specialists.
There are 4 levels of Health Assessment available for you to choose from to ensure it covers all medical concerns you may have:
