Conditions

A health check is used to check that some of your body's most important systems are all running correctly and without any problems. Most importantly, a health check can detect potential problems before they do real damage. Everyone is at risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, kidney disease and some forms of dementia. The good news is that these conditions can often be prevented. A health check will assess your risk of developing these health problems and give you personalised advice on how to reduce the risk of developing such problems.

When applying for a visa to certain countries, there is a requirement that applicants undergo a medical before a visa application can be approved or in some cases accepted. In order to protect their local community from public health and safety risks, immigration authorities like to ensure that applicants are free from a disease or condition considered to be a threat to public health or a danger to their local community.
