This Medical is a full health check designed not only to try and pick up any early signs of Cardiovascular Disease (causes heart attacks and stroke) and Cancer, but also to educate you about your health and actually try to prevent you developing cardiovascular disease. This is known as Primary Prevention.
We usually schedule executive medicals for the morning sessions, as we like you to attend Fasting i.e., nothing to eat or drink for the preceding 10-12 hours. It is easier to do this whilst asleep, and this allows your body’s metabolism to achieve baseline levels. Please note if you have a medical condition that may be affected by this, or you are on any medication, you should discuss this by phone or email with the Doctor before attending / embarking on your fast.
You will have a full medical with the Doctor, which includes a full Medical History and Examination. We have both Male & Female Doctors and it is our policy that all personal examinations are chaperoned. Obviously, if there is any part of the examination that you do not require it is entirely at your discretion. After this our nurse will take Blood tests (please see full list below) and also perform Audiometry (hearing test) and Full Vision Screen (please bring your spectacles / lenses if you use same). We then finish off the medical with a Resting ECG. The Doctor will collate all the data and prepare a report which will be forwarded to you with any advice or suggestions which you can follow up, either with us or your GP. We aim to make your medical an enjoyable and educational experience.
