Even if you feel healthy, you should visit your doctor regularly. Early detection of health issues can make all the difference when it comes to treating them.

For a full list of health checks and vaccinations recommended for older people, see the Regular health checks information on the Victorian Government's Better Health Channel website.

Visiting your doctor regularly will also help you to safely manage your medications. See the Better Health Channel's Medicines - safety issues web page for more information.

And since an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, why not keep your doctor happy by looking after your health and fitness all year round?
