Consultation with a doctor

Consultation with an experienced general practitioner.  You will have the opportunity to talk openly, informally and in confidence about your health.  The doctor will review your medical history, talk about your lifestyle and discuss any specific concerns you may have.  A full physical examination will be performed.  All advice provided will be included in a report for you to keep.

Free follow up appointment with a doctor

We are a private GP clinic and want you to develop a relationship with our doctor.  We do not simply want to perform tests and send you a report.  This is why you will have the option to follow up your health screen with a free appointment with the same GP you met with. This can be via telephone or face to face and provides the opportunity to discuss all the findings in the health screen. We want to provide continuity of care.

Lifestyle questionnaire

Your lifestyle can influence your health and the questionnaire will identify areas which can impact on your physical wellbeing including diet, smoking and exercise. Details of your medical history will be considered.

Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a risk factor in heart disease, strokes and other serious conditions. High blood pressure usually causes no symptoms so you will not know if you have it.  Therefore, everyone should have regular blood pressure checks at least every 3 years or sooner.

Body composition check

Body composition is the body’s relative amount of fat to fat-free mass. A good body composition makes you healthier, move more easily, and generally feel better than those with less-than-ideal body composition. Keeping body fat under control and maintaining a healthy weight can help to prevent diabetes and other obesity related diseases.

Your height and weight will be measured and body mass index (BMI) calculated.  BMI is a measure of whether you are a healthy weight for your height.

The Word Health Organization identified that abdominal obesity rather than generalized obesity is a stronger risk factor for some diseases.

We will calculate your waist – hip ratio and comment on the findings.

Cardiovascular Disease Risk

Findings from your medical examination and test results will be used to work out your individual risk of having a heart attack or stroke over the next ten years.

Urine Test

Urinalysis involves checking the appearance, concentration and content of urine.

Spirometry

Spirometry is a method of assessing lung function and how well you can breathe. It is a reliable method of diagnosing respiratory conditions such as asthma and COPD.

ECG

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple test to check your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity.  It provides useful information on how your heart is working.

Comprehensive Blood Tests

Cholesterol profile (Lipid Profile):

Blood tests for total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglycerides. If your cholesterol is high, usually there will be no signs and symptoms so it is important to check your cholesterol as it is a risk factor for heart diseases.

Glucose:

This is checked to ensure that your blood glucose level is in a healthy range. It is used to diagnose and monitor diabetes.

Full blood count:

The full blood count (FBC) is one of the most commonly ordered tests and provides important information about cells in the blood.  This screening is for infection, anaemia and other blood diseases.

Kidney function:

Checks that the kidneys are working properly, measures the level of urea, creatinine, and certain dissolved salts.

Uric Acid:

This is done to check the level of Uric acid in your blood. This helps in the diagnosis of Gout and monitoring uric acid during chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Liver function (BOE Liver):

Used to detect liver damage or disease. Liver function tests measure various chemicals in the blood made by the liver. An abnormal result indicates a problem with the liver, and may help to identify the cause. Further tests may then be needed.

Bone Profile:

Tests that include the measurement of Calcium and Phosphate. Alterations in these levels may be associated with both bone and kidney disease.

ESR:

This is a non-specific test that detects acute or chronic inflammation.

Iron store:

Provides an indication of the body’s iron status.

Thyroid Function Test:

Used to measure how well your thyroid gland is working.

Vitamin D:

Vitamin D is important for good overall health and strong and healthy bones. It’s also an important factor in making sure your muscles, heart, lungs and brain work well and that your body can fight infection. Your level is measured to detect any deficiency.

Cervical smear:

A method of detecting abnormal cells on the cervix.  If your result shows abnormal changes we will automatically test for high risk HPV DNA at no extra cost.

Faecal Occult Blood (FOB):

FOB is used to screen for bowel cancer before any symptoms develop.

Prostate Profile (PSA):

PSA is an enzyme substance made by the prostate gland. Raised PSA can be an early indication of prostate cancer in some men.

Ferritin:

To see how much iron your body has stored for future use. It is the most useful indicator of iron deficiency which causes anaemia.
