Preventative Care & Health Assessments

Medical care isn’t only about treating accidents and illnesses. Prevention and wellness are also vital parts of a holistic health care plan. Healthy choices are essential to maintaining good physical and mental health. Daily choices such as giving up tobacco, eating a healthful diet and getting enough exercise will help keep people well and prevent some of Australia’s leading causes of disability and death: diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancers.

What is Wellness?

Wellness is an active, lifelong process and commitment. It means having an awareness of daily choices and making decisions toward a more balanced, fulfilling and healthful life. The team at Oxford Village Medical Centre are committed to educating our patients so we can help reduce the most common preventable threats to patient health.

The Importance of Preventative Care

What is preventative care? Preventive care is critical to a patient’s overall health. This type of healthcare includes:

  • Screenings
  • Exams
  • Tests
  • Immunisations
  • And more.

A proactive healthcare plan wants to identify health problems early on so you can take action to keep them from becoming chronic conditions. Not only does preventative care keep you more physically and mentally comfortable, but it can also affect your finances. When you catch health problems early, you end up spending less money on expensive prescriptions, operations, or emergency procedures.
