What is a health assessment?

When you come into care you will have a health assessment. You will then have one every year whilst you are in care. They are nothing to be scared about, a doctor or nurse will meet with you, measure your height, weight, etc. and discuss your health with you.

This is done to make sure you are healthy and that you are getting any medication or treatment that you need to have. You will also be supported to go to the dentist and have your eyes tested regularly. If you are feeling nervous about your health assessment you can take your carer if you want.

You and your carer can contact the Health team at anytime for support or advice on 01902 444351.

You can also see the videos below which explain what your initial health assessment and your review health assessment are all about:
