Summerfield Healthcare recognises the reluctance of men to attend their GP for health checks and advice and as such offer a comprehensive well man medical service, specially tailored to suit you with convenient appointment times and a confidential service.
With gold and platinum packages available, you are able to choose a well man medical that works for you.
A well man medical can reassure you, or your family, that your health is on track, which is of increasing importance as you get older.
When you have a well man health check, you will be able to catch any issues that might benefit from early diagnosis, and early assessment and diagnosis could also help tackle potentially avoidable illnesses. Key lifestyle changes, picked up by your well man check-up, could also help you reduce your risk of getting them in the first place.
Every health check appointment will result in a comprehensive report of all our findings and any advice that our clinicians feel is necessary to help you stay healthy. This report will be retained on your patient record with Summerfield Healthcare and can be used for comparison of future checks. Findings may be shared with your NHS GP at your discretion.
Annual well man checks can help you to better understand your own health and lifestyle and are important in monitoring any changes in vital readings, including blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. With Summerfield Healthcare’s Platinum well man package you can benefit from discounted rates by having an annual medical check-up – his is our way of helping you stay motivated to stay healthy.

A well man screen or MOT is an in-depth health assessment designed specifically for men to help detect any medical issues at an early stage and give you peace of mind about your health.
Heart disease, testicular cancer, and prostate cancer are serious health risks for men and we believe that a regular health check offers the best chance of early detection. These are relatively common problems but often go undetected, and untreated, until it is too late to give adequate and sometimes life-saving treatment.
In addition to detecting existing conditions, well man checks can also ease any anxiety or concern you may have about your health. Anxiety can often do more harm than good and a well man medical can reassure you about your health and provide you with information and advice to keep yourself healthy in the future.
Being armed with more information about your own body and health empowers you to take care of your health and wellbeing more effectively. With the report and follow up consultations we offer, we can work with you to build healthy habits that are personalised and tailored to your short term and long term needs.
