50+ Wellness Screening
As we get older, we all need to be a little more aware of our health. Advancing age, exposure to environmental factors and the cumulative effects of our lifestyle choices all have an impact on our wellbeing.
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.
What happens when you book your 50+ Wellness Screen at The London General Practice?
Your 50+ Wellness screen will be tailored to your personal health background so we make sure that any concerns you may have are answered, whilst at the same time ensuring that your screen is bespoke to your needs and requirements.
The session includes:
30 minutes with one of our experienced Practice Nurses who will carry out a series of base-line checks on your health including taking bloods to test for:
- Height and weight
- Blood pressure
- Haemoglobin (anaemia)
- Blood sugar levels (diabetes)
- Kidneys and liver function
This is then followed by a 60-minute consultation with a doctor to discuss your personal health history, and family or genetic pre-dispositions and any other health concerns, plus an examination.
Depending on the outcome of this consultation, and potentially your blood or genetic tests, the diagnostic scanning and examination options include:
- Essential cancer screening
- Heart health
- Menopause clinics
- Sexual health screening
- Cholesterol level testing
- Blood pressure testing
- Lung function testing
- Osteoporosis clinics
- Diabetes screening
- Nutritional assessment and advice for weight loss
- Stress counselling and access to alternative therapies
And the Doctor will discuss the benefits of each with you. Once complete you will receive from the Doctor a complete report on your health.
At the London General Practice we screen for cancers individually or as part of one of our comprehensive health screens. Our genetic testing cancer panel can also help you understand if you have an increased genetic risk of developing any one of 57 hereditary cancer conditions.
