Women’s health check

Keeping an eye on your health. Health checks are important at any age, but especially for women who in their forties. This is an important decade for preventing health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and many types of cancer later in life.

If you’ve been making healthy lifestyle choices, keep it up in your 40s, and if you haven’t, now is the time to start with Summerfield Healthcare.

Summerfield Healthcare recognises the importance of the role of preventative health checks for women. We offer a health screen check, specially tailored to suit you, convenient appointment times and a fully confidential service.

Every health check appointment will result in a comprehensive report of all findings and any subsequent advice. This 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.

What is involved?

The Wellwoman check-up with Summerfield Healthcare can take up to 1 hour and includes:

  • Discussion on your lifestyle including diet, exercise, weight, smoking, contraception and family medical history
  • Blood pressure test
  • Blood Glucose check
  • Blood Tests
  • ECG
  • Weight check
  • Urine analysis to test for basic urinary abnormalities
  • Time for your questions

*If you would like a lipid profile, a more in-depth cholesterol check, this can be done but you will need to fast for 12 hours prior to your appointment, drinking only water. As a result, a morning appointment is preferred.

A lipid profile test is available for customers with raised cholesterol levels and who require a detailed breakdown of the levels in the blood such as LDL and HDL. The test will pinpoint irregularities.

In the event of any health concerns being identified, Summerfield Healthcare is often able to refer you on to specialist consultants or practitioners within our team ensuring a swift and responsive service.

Early diagnosis of serious illness

One in three deaths in England are before the age of 75 and more than three quarters of these premature deaths are as a result of the five big killers:

  • cancer
  • heart disease
  • stroke
  • respiratory disease
  • liver disease

Heart disease and cancer are serious health risks for women and we believe that a regular health check offers the best chance of early detection.

Reassurance

Anxiety about health can often do more harm than good and a healthcheck can reassure you about your health, and provide you with information and advice to keep yourself healthy into the future.

A Wellwoman check will:

  • Allow you time to discuss issues that a normal GP appointment cannot allow for
  • Give you total anonymity, The appointment won’t appear on your medical records
  • Give you the option of referral pathways both privately and within the NHS if we find something that needs immediate attention
  • More often, reassure you that everything is okay with a few improvement suggestions
