    Here are some common health risks:

    • high blood pressure
    • elevated blood lipids
    • elevated blood glucose
    • overweight
    • abdominal fat
    • smoking
    • over-consumption of alcohol

    With us, you will always be looked after by a registered nurse, who will take the necessary samples and carry out a number of tests.
    Your second appointment will be with your physician, who will go through your test results and healthcare questionnaire with you and give you a physical examination. Depending on your results, you will then discuss any treatment and/or follow-up required.

  • Health assessment

    At your first appointment, a registered nurse will measure and test your:

    • vision at long and short distance
    • intraocular pressure (if aged over 50)
    • hearing
    • heart (ECG)
    • blood pressure
    • blood
    • weight and height
    • abdominal height
    • lungs (spirometry)
    • urine
    • stools – for the presence of blood (if aged over 50)

    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.
    Your second appointment is with your physician, by which time your blood samples will have been analysed. He/she will go through your test results and healthcare questionnaire with you, and then conduct 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.

  • Health assessment – One-off

    A one-off appointment is when you visit us only once for a health assessment. The procedure is the same as above.
    You will first see a registered nurse, who will measure and test your:

    • abdominal height
    • lungs (spirometry)
    • urine
    • stools for the presence of blood (if aged over 50)

    While the samples are being analysed (which takes approximately 30 minutes), you will complete your healthcare questionnaire over a cup of tea or coffee and a light snack.
    Once your blood samples have been analysed, your physician will go through your test results and healthcare questionnaire with you, and then conduct 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.
    A one-off health assessment takes about an hour and a half.
