Health Screening

Looking after oneself is a top priority for many, and health screening is an excellent way of assessing your current health and wellbeing. 

Our health screens are designed and tailored for men and women with concerns in regards to their health. By undertaking a health screen you can reassure the status of your health, or potentially determine the onset or future risk of developing diseases.  By catching risks or onset of disease early, you are best placed for initial treatment or preventative measures to be taken.

What is included in the health screen?

A health screen is a general, overall check of your current health.  Our GP led Health Screen includes tests, examinations and a detailed medical history discussion with a GP.  You will also be provided with a comprehensive report and personalised advice on lifestyle and behavioural changes to improve your long term health.  

Everyone is susceptible to illness, and so can benefit from the positive action and peace of mind resulting from a health screen.  However, you may particularly want to consider a health screen in the following circumstances:

  • After the birth of your baby
  • Before taking up physical exercise
  • Family history of illness such as heart disease, diabetes or cancer
  • If you are over the age of 50
  • If you have any health concerns
  • After prolonged exposure to stressful situations or if you have a hectic lifestyle

How long will it take?

The whole process takes approximately one and a half to two hours.  The blood tests and physical exams will be carried out on the same day for the GP MOT.  Should you opt for a Health Screen Package with Imaging, you may be required to book another visit.  Upon receiving all of your test results approximately 1 week from your initial appointment, you will have a 30 min follow-up discussion with the GP where you will be provided with a written report.

What type of tests are included in the health screen?

Your GP will tailor your health screen to your particular age, sex and medical history.  However, the following basic measurements and tests are included in our GP MOT:
