A Health Screen at Parkside Hospital involves a range of comprehensive tests and consultation time with a specialist Health Screening Nurse and Doctor. Health Screening is tailored to your age, gender and medical history.
We’ll ask you to complete a detailed questionnaire before your screen. Please don’t hesitate to raise any fears, worries or concerns you may have about any aspect of your general health. Knowing about these concerns helps us to note any symptoms that you identify and customise the tests to meet your individual requirements.
Everyone is susceptible to illness at some point in their life and you may feel more reassured about your general health following the screen. Certain diseases are more common as you age and we can tailor your consultation to test for these conditions.
You may benefit more from a health screening in the following circumstances:
- After giving birth
- Before starting a new physical exercise routine
- If there is a history of cancer, heart disease, diabetes or other illnesses in your family
You can refer yourself for Health Screening and do not need a letter of referral from your GP.
