What is a Health assessment?

The Aboriginal Health Assessment is a comprehensive assessment of your health, including physical, psychological and social wellbeing.

Tailored for all age ranges, the check encourages prevention, early detection, diagnosis and follow up for conditions that can cause or lead to early morbidity or mortality.

Known as a SNAPP check our Aboriginal Health Workers provide consultations as a part of your appointment with the doctor.

In a SNAPP CHECK you can

  • Talk about your cycles of care
  • Undergo a quick physical health check
  • Discuss preventative health
  • Book future appointments and discuss referrals

This assessment is often the start of a cycle of health care and wellbeing. And can include:

  • referrals to allied health including an Aboriginal Health Practitioner,
  • follow up appointments with a GP, Nurse, Aboriginal Health Worker and Pharmacist for care plans for mental illness and chronic disease.

A health assessment may be required to access some of our programs and services such as the Chronic Disease Supplementary Services (CCSS), brokerage and allied health clinics such as optometry.
