In the 2019 Health and Wellbeing Garda Personnel survey*, Gardaí personnel rated their physical health at an average of 6.6/10. The Garda Representative Association recognised the need for a proactive health and wellbeing programme and together with the GRA Income Protection and Life Cover Plans, they commissioned MyHealthCheck for members.

Who is eligible for MyHealthCheck?

  • All ranks who are members of either The GRA Income Protection or Group Life Plans, including retirees. If you are of Garda rank, you must be a subscribing GRA member.
  • All subscribing GRA members.

Your results

Two weeks after attending the clinic, participants will receive a comprehensive 24 + paged health report that includes a valuable overview of their current health status. It will also indicate if any markers are identified for a wide range of life threatening illnesses, including: Stroke, Diabetes, Heart Attack, Liver Damage and more.

Results are reviewed by an Irish Medical Council registered doctor, who will provide recommendations on lifestyle and health that will help promote a longer and healthier life.

The report uses a simple colour coded flag system of green, amber and red. A quick summary page is provided to give members a clear overview of their health and highlight areas that they need to address.

While the MyHealthCheck report will provide some information on how to improve health, we highly recommend that you share your report with your personal GP. They are best placed to help you create a plan to improve your long term health.
