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.
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.
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.
Urinalysis involves checking the appearance, concentration and content of urine.
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
This is also called Lipid profile and is a group of blood tests where we check 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 an important indicator or risk factor for heart diseases.

This is done for a broad range of screening such as infection, anaemia and other blood diseases.
