Cardiovascular Risk Assessments (CVRA)

Cardiovascular risk assessments are a tool to calculate the risk of heart disease or stroke. At the assessment, the nurse will take blood tests, measure your height and weight, take your blood pressure and ask about your family history. If your risk is low, you will be notified and recalled in five years. If you have a 10 – 15% risk, you will be invited to have a visit with one of our specialist nurses, Bridget or Carol, to learn what small changes you can make that will help lower your risk. If your risk is higher you will be advised to see your doctor. These assessments are free if you meet one of the following criteria:

  • 35 – 74 year old Maori or Pacific male.
  • 45 – 74 year old Maori or Pacific female.
