Welcome to Hälsocentralen
Our healthcare concept gives you the care you need, when you need it
Everyone knows that we need to look after our bodies and take the best care of them. But how often do we check that everything’s OK? Many people seem to care more for their cars than their bodies and have them inspected every year to make sure they’re roadworthy and to prevent unforeseen breakdowns.
As a subscriber to Hälsocentralen, you will receive a regular examination in the same systematic way to identify any health risks and prevent disease. You will be assigned your own specialist physician, who will get to know you and keep a constant check on your health.
To have regular health assessments and get help preventing disease is to choose a long-term healthcare option as distinct from many other solutions that can only be applied once problems have set in. Your wellbeing is important to us, and in the interests of preventing disease we invite you to consult your physician about maintaining a healthy lifestyle now and in the future.
We’ve been helping to prevent disease for 40 years
Since opening in 1975, Hälsocentralen has carried out some 500,000 health assessments. We believe that we are the biggest, and aim to be the best!
What’s included in a subscription?
As a subscriber to Hälsocentralen, your health assessment will include the following:
1. Nurse’s appointment
At your first appointment, a nurse will take blood samples to test:
- blood sedimentation
- blood count (Hb)
- blood lipids
- blood glucose
- uric acid
- GFR (kidney function)
- liver function
- thyroid function (all women)
- PSA (men, if requested)
The nurse will also check your:
- vision at long and short distance
- intraocular pressure (if aged over 50)
- heart (ECG)
- weight and height
- blood pressure
- lungs (spirometry)
- stools – for the presence of blood (if aged over 50)
- abdominal height
You will then complete our healthcare questionnaire about your medical history, lifestyle and any current health problems. This and the various test results will provide your physician with the information he or she needs to assess your health.
2. Physician’s appointment
Your second appointment is with your physician, who will go through your questionnaire and test results with you before conducting a physical examination of your:
- mouth and throat
- thyroid gland
- lymph glands
- heart and lungs
- abdominal organs
- moles and similar marks
- mammary gland tissue (women)
- prostate gland (men over 50)
From all this, you and your physician will sum up your health status. Depending on the results, you might have to discuss and plan further treatment/follow-ups.
3. Care when you need it
When you subscribe to Hälsocentralen, you will have access to our nursing advice line, and will be able to book an appointment with your personal physician whenever you wish between health checks (see price list). When you need to renew a standing prescription given by one of our physicians, give us a call and we will do that too. At Hälsocentralen we will return all your test results to you, even when everything is normal – all to ensure your peace of mind.
