To mark World Heart Day on Tuesday, we decided to make a video to highlight the importance of having a healthy heart check.
If you're 45 and over, or 30 and over if you're of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent, you should book your Heart Health Check today!
Do you know what your risk of having a heart attack or stroke is? Having a regular Heart Health Check with your GP will help you better understand your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
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.
A big shout out to Dr Nav for being such a good sport and so fabulous in this video!! We made this video entirely ourselves so feeling very proud. We hope you like it and it highlights a very important issue in our society.
To book a healthy heart check online, just select the 'standard consultation' option as you need to speak to your GP to ensure all your blood tests are up to date and you don't have any pre-existing heart conditions which make you ineligible.
