Why men need to have a health check up

Why have a health check up?

A health check up can discover potential health problems before they develop into more serious chronic conditions.

A basic health check should include a review of blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol levels. Depending on your age and genetic history, you should also be checked for prostate disorders and bowel cancer.

How do I arrange a health check up?

Talk to your GP about having a health check.

To find a GP in your local area visit our National Health Services Directory or the hospitals and health services page. 

If you do not have a GP, Healthdirect Australia can provide you with health information and the location of a GP. 

Contact Healthdirect Australia on 1800 022 222.
