Health Screening plays a crucial role in preventative healthcare by identifying potential health issues at an early stage, enabling timely intervention and treatment.

Currently, we provide three levels of general health screening: Cardiovascular & Lifestyle Check, Well Man/Woman, Well Man/Woman Plus which include a range of tests to evaluate overall health, identify risk factors and detect potential medical conditions.

General Health Screening for men involves measurements such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels and body mass index (BMI) to assess cardiovascular health. It may also include prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests to screen for prostate cancer, as well as tests to evaluate liver and kidney function, blood sugar levels, and overall fitness.

Well-woman health screenings encompass the same cardiovascular assessment and may also include clinical breast examination and pap smear. Blood tests to evaluate hormone levels and thyroid function may also be included.

Cancer Screening also plays an important role:

  • Breast cancer screening may involve ultrasound and/or mammography to detect any abnormalities in breast tissue.
  • Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) tests and digital rectal examination are commonly employed for prostate cancer screening in men.
  • Skin cancer screening involves visual examination of the skin, including mole mapping, to identify any suspicious moles or lesions which may require further investigation.
  • Lung cancer screening involves the use of low dose CT (LDCT) scans to detect lung nodules or tumours at an early stage, in individuals at risk, such as those who smoke or who have smoked. This screening method has proven effective in improving survival rates by enabling early intervention and treatment prior to symptoms developing.
  • Bowel cancer screening aims to detect colorectal cancer or precancerous polyps using tests such as faecal occult blood (FOB) tests and colonoscopy. Early detection through screening can significantly reduce mortality rates and enhance treatment outcomes for this common form of cancer.

Regular health screening is useful for everyone, regardless of age or gender, as it facilitates early detection and intervention for potential health concerns. Screening not only helps to save lives but also promotes overall well-being by encouraging individuals to adopt a healthy lifestyle and take proactive measures for their health.
