Free heart health checks

Get the facts on your heart health with a check-up at your nearest HCF branch.

  • In-branch blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar readings
  • Healthy heart advice from a registered nurse
  • Heart health snapshot in under 10 minutes

When it comes to heart health it’s important to know your numbers.

Blood pressure, total cholesterol and blood sugar levels can provide insight into your cardiovascular health, and whether you should make protective lifestyle changes.

HCF members with extras cover can access health checks at selected HCF branches thanks to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, a not-for-profit charity dedicated to fighting cardiovascular disease through research.

How does it work?

A registered nurse takes a tiny blood sample via a finger prick and gives you your results on the spot. They can also provide advice on healthy heart habits. The whole thing takes less than 10 minutes.

What’s the cost?

The checks are free to HCF members aged 18 or over with extras cover. To support the charity’s work, a gold coin donation will be gratefully accepted, or you can donate online at Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute. Donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.

Where to get your check

Victor Chang Health Check booths will be at selected HCF branches in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and the ACT in 2018.
