Confidential Health Check

A confidential, free health check is available to CFA Members as well as anyone who worked, trained or had any contact with the former CFA Training College at Fiskville or the VEMTC sites managed by CFA.

The health check is provided by an independent medical firm specialising in occupational health services.

CFA will fund the appointment and subsequent follow-up testing.

The information provided at the health check is confidential and covered by the Health Records Act 2001. Details of the consultation are not released back to CFA. CFA will only receive a register of people attending.

For more information or to arrange a health check, phone the Environment and Health Hotline on 1800 628 616. You can also email the Health Surveillance Coordinator at healthsurveillance@cfa.vic.gov.au.

Five Year Health Surveillance Program

The five year health surveillance program was developed in conjunction with specialist medical experts. It involves an annual medical assessment, which includes a health questionnaire and a detailed medical examination.

Depending on the circumstances, the providers may determine it appropriate to offer individuals access to the program.

The provider co-ordinates the examinations and any associated testing which can include pathology services and may also consult the individual’s regular doctor.

The program is confidential in line with normal medical privacy arrangements.

In the last five years, more than 500 people have been through the testing and screening process.

Wellbeing Services for CFA Members and Their Families

CFA’s wellbeing support services are free and confidential for members and their immediate families. Information on these services and how to access them can be found at the Health and Welfare tab at CFA Online.
