At the Harley Street Health Centre, we put a special emphasis on preventative healthcare. Our interest in women’s health & wellbeing is reflected in a variety of screening services, including our Wellwoman package, which is designed especially for women, & covers the most important health markers for female health conditions.

If you come in for a full Wellwoman screening, your appointment will last around 90 minutes, during which time you will be with the doctor. Specific screening appointments take less time (about 20-30 minutes for a smear test or sexual health appointment). We always have female doctors available. For most female health screenings we will automatically make sure that your appointment is with a woman, but if you are unsure please do confirm with a member of our team when you make your appointment.

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 screening is when you are feeling well. Some screenings, such as smear testing & sexual health testing, can flag potentially dangerous issues that would not normally present with symptoms, & so you should always make sure you are up to date with these.

In general, it is advisable to have a full health check-up every year or so, although this may vary depending on your individual needs & current state of your health. Sexual health testing will depend on your personal practices, number of partners, & whether you are practicing safe sex. If you would like to have a health screening, but are unsure of what you need, the best thing to do is come for a consultation with a GP, to discuss your lifestyle, any concerns or symptoms, & get some advice regarding the next steps.
