As we get older, we all need to be a little more aware of our health. Although some of it is down to our genes, advancing age, exposure to environmental factors and the cumulative effects of our lifestyle choices are bound to have an impact on our wellbeing.

People in their 30s, 40s and 50s tend to be running around between work, home and family, leaving less time for exercise, relaxation and taking care of health issues. At The London General Practice, we encourage you to take a step back, take time out to have your health and risk factors assessed and to take timely action.

Through a combination of the latest screening techniques and technology, and expert diet and lifestyle advice, we can help you to be proactive about your health whether you are just 50 or you are in your 90s.

Cardiac Screening, Blood Pressure Testing and Cancer Specialists for the Over 50 | LGP

Our team will work with you to maintain the best possible health and wellbeing, so that you can continue to enjoy life to the full, whatever your age.

Essential cancer screening

Most cancers become more prevalent as people age—the vast majority are diagnosed in people over 60. Unfortunately, too many cancers are still diagnosed late. With modern treatments and surgical techniques, early detection can often make a significant difference to the outcome so it makes sense to undertake regular screening to spot these cancers at a very early stage.

At The London General Practice, we offer comprehensive cancer screening, including colon, prostate, breast, ovarian and lung cancers. We can access the latest, high-tech, cutting-edge diagnostic tests available in Harley Street and its environs, arranging your tests efficiently so that you can get everything done within a day,

“The London General Practice cancer screening programme gives you complete peace of mind.”

Heart health

Heart disease is still a big killer in the UK. Although women are protected to some extent before the menopause, that protection ends as levels of oestrogen drop. Women in the 50+ age group are just as in need of cardiovascular risk assessment and screening as men of the same age.

At The London General Practice, we are able to offer comprehensive cardio-vascular screening, either to identify problems early, or simply to put your mind at rest. These include:

  • Blood pressure tests
  • ECG heart traces
  • EBCT coronary calcium scores
  • Cholesterol tests
  • Aortic aneurysm scans
  • Vitalograph lung function tests
  • Chest X-rays

The tests are performed in modern facilities either within LGP or within other hospitals and clinics by friendly professional staff. If heart disease or other problems are identified, we have unrivalled contacts with London’s finest cardiologists and can provide a swift referral so that you can obtain a treatment and follow up plan.

“Maintaining a healthy heart is the key to health and wellbeing as you move into middle age and beyond.”
