Recommended health checks

It’s a good idea to see your doctor for a regular health check even if you are currently feeling fit and healthy.

Regular health checks and screening tests can help you to stay healthy by:

  • finding health problems at an early stage before they develop into more serious chronic conditions.
  • helping to prevent and detect serious illness like cancer.

If you have a family history of a certain disease or other risk factors, regular health checks and screening tests are even more important.
