Do you perform annual Health Assessments for patients aged over 75 years at GPs on Bayview?

We offer a comprehensive annual health review for our patients aged over 75 years. This represents an opportunity to consider areas of your health that may not have recently been covered during routine medical appointments. It involves a practice nurse performing a comprehensive interview, preferably in your home, which takes around 1 hour. Afterwards, you attend your regular GP for a medical check-up and completion of the assessment.

Specifically, the assessment reviews your physical ability, social support and psychological well-being. The focus of Health Assessments is preventative care – solving problems before they happen, and identifying things that can be done to help you live independently in your own home for as long as possible. At GPs on Bayview, we bulk bill the Over 75 Health Assessment so there is no cost to you.
