Healthy Kids Check
What is it?
The aim of the Health Check is to ensure every child in Australia has a basic health check to see if they are healthy, fit and ready to learn when they start school.
The Healthy Kids Check will:
- Promote early detection of lifestyle risk factors
- Delayed development and illness, and
- Introduce guidance for healthy lifestyles and early intervention strategies.
The Health Check usually takes place at or around the same time as the four year old immunisation
The Health Assessement includes information collection of family and environmental factors, medical and social history, and lifestysle risk factors.
Where appropriate, arrangements will be put into place for referrals and follow-ups of any problems identified
