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.
Recommended regular health tests include:
- blood pressure
- cholesterol levels
- blood glucose
- skin check
Women’s health checks
