For a Wellman health screening, you will be with the doctor for around 90 minutes. Individual screenings take less time (20-30 minutes for individual blood tests or general health consultations). We always have male doctors available, so please let us know at the time you make your booking if you would like to see a male doctor.
Although it is fine to come for a health screening at any point, the best time to have one is when you are feeling well. Our high-quality primary care service & screening options allow you to be vigilant about the degenerative disease and, in the case of illness, to ensure early diagnosis.
The emphasis in our screenings is on disease prevention, & on reducing or managing your risk of cardiovascular disease. Once you are aware of any potential risks, the development of diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes & cancers can be mitigated. Lifestyle factors such as healthy eating, weight management, regular check-ups & blood tests & physical examinations can all be helpful.
It is important not to ignore symptoms, but you do not need to have any symptoms at all in order to come in for a health screening. In fact, the best time to have a screening is when you are feeling well. The general advice is that it is a good idea to have a full health check-up every year or so, depending on your individual needs & the current state of your health.
The level of screening you require will also vary. We have hormone testing, diabetes testing, & a full sexual health screen all available as add-ons to the basic Wellman check-up. If you would like to have a preventative health screening, but are unsure of what you need, the best thing to do is come for a consultation with a GP. The doctor will ask you questions about your lifestyle, any existing symptoms or significant family health history, & provide you with advice regarding the next steps.
We can investigate a full range of health symptoms, relating to any aspect of the body or physical systems, including symptoms related to endocrine health, the reproductive system, vitamin levels, chronic illness or infection, hormonal changes, digestive problems, & many more.
