A Family GP Clinic

General Health Screening

Our GP’s provide general health Screenings for all our patients. Health Screenings are medical tests that can provide doctors with early indicators of existing problems, early detection of diseases and health conditions. Health screening is an excellent way to diagnose potential problems early, when they may be easier to treat. We highly recommended screening tests.

A General Health Screening involves a consultation with the GP who will base your individual tests based on your medical history, family history, lifestyle and presenting current issues.

This can include:

  • Blood Tests
  • Diabetes Screening
  • Cholesterol Screening
  • Cardiovascular Screening and ECG
  • Stress and Mental Health Assessment
  • Weight and BMI

The GP will discuss and make recommendations based on the consultation and results


The GP must see you to examine you before doing a referral letter to a consultant, physiotherapist, X- Ray or MRI .

The GP will not and is not obliged to issue patients with referral letters until they are seen by the GP.


We use SMS messaging to inform our patients that their results have been reviewed by the GP. Results are given by a medical Health professional. In the event that you have not heard from the clinic within 10 days, please contact reception.

Results of MRI / CT Scans and Dexa Scans or any complicated results will be discussed by consultation between you and the GP by appointment.
