At the London General Practice, our philosophy is to help all our patients to maintain their health and wellbeing through carefully targeted testing, treatment and advice, with flexible appointment availability to suit your busy schedule.
Our Well-Man programme is designed specifically for the health concerns of our male patients. We offer a wide range of screening tests, some of which are not routinely available or easy to access on the NHS, including specific screening for conditions such as prostate and testicular cancer, to general health advice on issues such as stress management, diet and exercise.
What happens when you book your Well-Man Screen at The London General Practice?
Your Well-Man 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:
- Blood tests to measure PSA levels (prostate specific antigen)
- Prostate examination and MRI
- Testicular checks
- In-depth cardio vascular screening
- Stool sample test for faecal blood to identify potential colon cancer
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.
