Keeping an eye on your health. Summerfield Healthcare recognises the reluctance of men to attend their GP’s for health checks and advice and as such offer a health screen check, specially tailored to suit you with convenient appointment times and a confidential service.
A health check can reassure you, or your family, that your health is on track as you get older.
Should there be any issues at all, early diagnosis could help tackle potentially avoidable illnesses. Key lifestyle changes 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 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.
The Wellman check-up can take up to 1 hour and includes:
*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.
** Prostate antigen blood test (PSA) is recommended if you have symptoms such as difficulty passing urine, painful ejaculation or a swollen prostate gland. A prostate antigen test’s results will take 7-10 days. Please refrain from sexual intercourse 72 hours prior to your appointment if this is required.
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.
