There are two good reasons for screening: early detection and reassurance. Health screening can detect the most frequent conditions affecting people over the age of 40 (diabetes, coronary heart disease, most frequent cancers etc). Screening helps you become more aware of your health, and take control over it. Screening can also provide reassurance and stop you worrying unnecessarily over minor matters.
Again there are two good reasons. First, you will be treated as an individual rather than as a patient – we pride ourselves on our caring and personal approach. And second, at Dr Daniel’s Medical Centre, you will receive state-of-the-art health screening from doctors who specialise in preventative medicine.
Our screening covers all the main preventable conditions. These are:
♦ Diabetes type 2
♦ High blood pressure
♦ Coronary heart disease
♦ Bowel cancer
♦ Ovarian cancer
♦ Cervical cancer
♦ Breast cancer
♦ Prostate cancer
♦ Skin cancer
♦ Liver function
♦ Kidney function
No, it does not. A whole body scan or PET scan is not a good pre-emptive test. It has not been demonstrated as effective in detecting any particular disease early enough for useful diagnosis.
The doctor will advise you about this on the day of your first consultation.
Our advice would be not to go for a screening. It would be better for you to make an appointment for a consultation. From that the doctor will advise you on the appropriate tests to take.
Yes, you should fast for at least six hours before your appointment. You can drink water, coffee or tea without milk or sugar.
Our Harley Street Medical Centre is open between 8:30am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday. Same Day appointments are available if you call before 10:00am.
