Background information

A person wishing to undergo a health check must first contact their local health and social services centre. The examination usually includes the measurement of your body mass index and blood pressure, as well as certain laboratory tests. An important part of the check is discussing the person’s health, work ability, functional capacity, lifestyle and possible symptoms.

Key topics discussed during health checks include nutrition, exercise, sleep, smoking and alcohol use as well as life management and social relationships. If a need for further examinations or treatments emerges during the examination, the person performing the health examination will refer the patient to the correct services. Those in working life can also ask for a health check from their occupational health care provider.
