Free Heart Health Checks - 8 May 2024

Updated: Apr 29

Emerald Medical Group offers free heart health checks on Wednesday, the 8th of May 2024 to our community. These tests focus on three key modifiable risk factors for heart disease:


  1. Blood Pressure: Monitoring blood pressure levels helps identify hypertension, a significant risk factor for heart problems.

  2. Blood Sugar: Assessing blood sugar levels is essential for detecting diabetes, which can impact heart health.

  3. Cholesterol: Understanding cholesterol levels aids in managing heart disease risk.

By participating in these free heart health checks, individuals gain valuable insights into their cardiovascular health. Armed with this knowledge, they can take proactive steps to improve their well-being and prevent heart-related issues.



New Patients:

There will be no signup fee for first time patients booking a free heart health check.


What to Bring:

  • Medicare card (if applicable): This helps claim any Medicare benefits you're entitled to.

  • Photo ID: Valid identification is required.

  • Private health insurance details (optional):  If you have private health insurance, bring your membership details.

  • Medical history (optional): If you have any past medical records or a list of current medications, bring them along.
