PivotWest aims to assist and develop GP skills by implementing a pro-active approach to Preventative Health, with a specific focus on reducing the rate of chronic disease. We provide support and advice to GP’s in the identification of ‘at risk’ patients and implement early intervention strategies wherever possible. PivotWest also promotes government initiatives, undertaking small local projects as well as offering a number of education events centering around Preventative Health and Chronic Disease Management throughout the west of Melbourne.
45 – 49 Year Old Health Check

- lifestyle risk factors, such as smoking, physical inactivity, poor nutrition or alcohol misuse
