Health assessments aim to give an individual an understanding of their current health status and future health risks, as well as some tests designed to detect disease. Knowledge of future health risks will enable the individual to take appropriate steps to minimise the likelihood of developing illness. Early detection of some diseases enables earlier treatment and a better outcome.
Usually a health assessment consists of the completion of a detailed medical questionnaire, the performing of physiological and blood tests and a consultation with an experienced clinician. Additionally, specific tests recognised as being of benefit for disease detection may be included. These may depend on age and/or gender, e.g. mammography for women over the age of 40.
As part of the health assessment, the clinician will usually provide lifestyle advice and where necessary, information on the management of specific conditions, including onward referral to a specialist where appropriate.
In today’s highly stressful environment, many companies view health screening as one of their most popular executive benefits and they are highly valued by qualifying employees. They can form part of a wellness in the workplace programme and can help reduce absences later on by drawing an individual’s attention to a potential health issue to allow them to take preventative measures.
Through our many contacts we have access to screening services which can be carried out at either a hospital or in the workplace.
A basic lifestyle screening can cover such items as:
