A health assessment (HA) is an assessment where a nurse checks some of your health measures. Your health assessment can be done at Dis-Chem and Clicks pharmacies. These assessments can also be completed at corporate wellness days, through a qualifying medical scheme or even through one of our Multiply approved independent pharmacies. Multiply members receive one free health assessment, per year.
What is assessed during a health assessment?
The nurse will do the following checks during your health assessment:
- Blood pressure
- Waist circumference
These measurements, along with your age and gender will be used to calculate your body fat percentage. NB: Please note that the nurse will also ask you about your smoking status.
The results from your completed health assessment will be used to calculate your Healthy Heart Score.
