Heart Health Checks

Assessment is the foundation of a well planned and successful wellness programme. This is best achieved by health checks at your workplace by our experienced Registered Nurses. Nurses are trained to recognise unspoken signals - the human touch works! The employer has the option to receive an aggregated report identifying the health risks of the organisation. This enables a focussed approach to the "what next".

Heart Health Checks Include:

  • Cholesterol (Total/HDL Ratio; HDL; LDL)
  • Triglycerides
  • Blood sugar and diabetes risk
  • Blood Pressure
  • Height & Weight
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Waist Circumference
  • Individualised lifestyle advice

Checks take approximately 15 to 20 minutes and results are discussed with each client.

Each staff member receives their own confidential results booklet. This provides a good record as well as information on what was tested.

Recent Studies Show:

  • More than 66% of New Zealanders are either overweight or obese
  • Heart attacks and strokes are largely preventable yet one New Zealander dies of heart disease every hour.
  • Poor nutrition has an impact on people's productivity through factors such as lack of energy, poor concentration and lowered immunity.
  •  New Zealand has one of the highest rates of Diabetes in the OECD and this increases risk of cardiovascular disease significantly.
  • A high percentage of people are not operating at their full capacity due to their health. This can be improved with simple lifestyle changes.
