Complete Health screening services

At the London General Practice we aim to help you to stay healthy, as well as treating you when you are ill. That’s why we encourage all our patients to undergo annual health screening.

With health screening we can identify any early signs of disease or other health issues and discuss potential risk factors in your family history or lifestyle that may be putting your health at risk.

The Essential Health Plus package offers the most comprehensive and thorough screening, including well-woman and well-man assessment.

The emphasis is on prevention and early identification of disease leading your Doctor to recommend further diagnosis or lifestyle changes if needed.

Our location on Harley Street allows us to partner with leading Consultants, laboratories and gives us access to the world’s best diagnostic equipment.

Our screening uses up-to-date pathways through which your Doctor will then discuss with you further diagnostic tests and scans according to your needs and have these scheduled to your convenience.

On completion of the screening,  your Doctor will provide a report and series of recommendations.

The nurse will also take a blood sample, which will be tested for haemoglobin (to detect anaemia), cholesterol (to find if you blood lipids are within the correct range) and blood sugar levels (to screen for diabetes). Other tests assess how well your kidneys and liver are working.

“An annual health screen takes far less than a day out of your year but gives you 365 days peace of mind.”

Our health screens are comprehensive

Following your tests, your doctor will undertake a thorough physical examination and talk through your medical history, and that of your family to identify potential problems. Heightened risks can often be reduced to normal levels by lifestyle changes.

Once all of the test results are available, you will receive a comprehensive report giving you a clear understanding of your current health, as well as advice and guidance on how to maintain your health and wellbeing and what behaviours you may need to change to reduce the risk of disease. If all is well, we will call you and your report will follow. If we have concerns, another appointment with your doctor will be arranged.
