Men’s Health – Well Person Screening

A full range of screening tests for common and less common medical disorders are available at this surgery.

Our philosophy is to avoid giving you a battery of unnecessary, and sometimes unhelpful tests.
This is  followed by a targeted  examination that will generally include measurement of:

  • Body Mass Index  (weight for height ratio)
  • Blood Pressure
  • Heart and Lung Check
  • Abdominal check

This will then  lead to a rational choice of  screening tests  which may include:

  • Blood tests- Blood count, Biochemistry, Cholesterol, Iron, Thyroid, Prostate.
  • Urine analysis
  • ECG (cardiogram)
  • Blood Pressure Monitoring
  • Lung Function
  • Sensory Function (hearing, eyesight, neurology)
  • X-ray  and Ultrasound or other Scanning (this is done off site.)

Men’s health screening requires a special appointment. Please ask your GP, Nurse or at Reception.

Please be advised that screening is not covered by the Medical Card contract.
