We see a variety of patients requiring a medical examination or medical certificate.
Medical examinations and certification are often requested by our patients for immigration purposes, occupational assessments , fitness to participate or travel to name a few. We are recognised by the American Embassy as approved medical practitioners who can undertake such medicals. Please call us if you require such assistance and we would be happy to advise accordingly.
We have extended our opening hours during the weekdays and weekends, offering greater accessibility, ultimately saving you time and money.
The full screening program is highlighted below.
A thorough medical history is taken as 70 % of health related problems are diagnosed on direct questioning alone. There will be plenty of time to raise any concerns you may have about your health.
We will perform a thorough medical examination, which will assess the following areas:
- Nervous System
BMI (Body Mass Index)
A ratio of your height and weight is taken which gives us valuable information about your general fitness and health.
Urine Dip Stick
An assessment of your urine gives us valuable information about your body. It allows us to check for Diabetes, Kidney disease, Bladder disease, and Infection.
Your blood pressure is checked which will give us valuable information about the health of your heart. It is a fact that 50% of the patients with high blood pressure do not know they have it. High blood pressure increases the risk for a heart attack and stroke.
We do several blood tests looking at diabetes, cholesterol, kidney function, liver function and anaemia status.
Calculation of Cardiac Risk
Using specialised risk tables and the results from your screen, your overall 10-year cardiac risk is calculated. Depending on the results, the appropriate advice is given.
ECG (Electro Cardio Gram)
This gives vital information about the electrical activity of the heart. It also allows us to check for a number of different heart problems. All of our ECGs are assessed by Consultant Cardiologists.
Other tests (such as a chest X-Ray) are considered on an individual basis at extra cost.
We undertake medical examinations for professional license holders which include The Public Carriage Office, HGV, and PCB drivers.
