Qantas Employee Heart Health Checks

Qantas Insurance is offering employees the opportunity to receive a free heart health check. A Heart Health Check helps you to understand your risk factors for heart disease and estimate how likely you are to have a heart attack or stroke in the next five years.

What is it all about?

The check is 15 minutes in duration. An allied health professional will measure your blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol including HDL and body composition. To measure your blood glucose and cholesterol, the health professional will prick your finger to collect a small amount of blood that is collected in a tube and emptied onto a testing strip. Usually the person will only feel a small pin prick or nothing at all. Your results will be given to you in a Heart Health Check Booklet. If you fall into the high risk category for any of the tests, you may be advised to see your GP for further testing.

Note: These checks do not provide a diagnosis for any condition you may have, they simply assess risk. They don’t replace a visit to the GP, and if you are found to have any elevated risk factors, we will recommend you see your GP after your check. No fasting is required for the test.
