Len’s Story

Len is a 69-year-old grandfather who ignored symptoms of breathlessness and fatigue for years, putting them down to stress or other factors. In December 2019, Len had a quintuple bypass after being diagnosed with severe coronary artery disease.

Len’s story reminds us of the importance of having regular heart health checks, as heart disease can impact anyone.

What is Coronary Artery Disease?

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), also often referred to as heart disease, is the most common heart condition and leading cause of heart attack in Australia. As with many conditions, early identification through risk assessment is important. Click here to learn more about CAD.

What is a heart health check?

A heart health check is a consultation provided by your GP to assess your current risk of heart disease. Australians 45 and over (or 35 for Aboriginals/Torres Strait Islanders) can have a Medicare-rebatable heart health check.

Why are they important?

Heart disease can develop over years, in some cases without any clear symptoms. To help you get the best possible outcome with heart disease, early identification and prevention is key. When you know your risk, you can take the necessary steps required to reduce the likelihood of having a future cardiac event.

Depending on your results, your GP may refer you to a cardiologist for a cardiovascular risk assessment.
