FAQ
In addition to our comprehensive Wellman and Wellwoman checks, we provide health screening and examination relating to specific conditions.

These value-for-money checks and tests give peace of mind, a plan for the future and include a consultation with an experienced doctor.

Blood Pressure Checks

An initial blood pressure consultation at our walk-in clinic will include an assessment of lifestyle and cardiovascular risk and a blood pressure check.

You will see an experienced doctor who will discuss appropriate next steps with you, lifestyle changes and medication. Subsequent routine follow-ups can be organised at a reduced cost by speaking to the clinic manager if you plan to return regularly.

A 24 hour blood pressure monitoring service is available at our Harley Street branch. This will help us understand what is happening with your blood pressure over a whole day and night to come to a firmer diagnosis.

Cholesterol Testing & Consultation

If you have a family history of heart disease, high cholesterol or stroke, or if you are concerned about your cholesterol, our cholesterol profile will tell you exactly where you’re at.

Some clinics only test your total cholesterol level which is a poor indicator of what’s going on. Our profile breaks this down into several important components, including the levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol, HDL “good” cholesterol and triglycerides, which gives you and the doctor a clear idea of the current status.

As part of your initial screening, we recommend a full blood profile which includes a comprehensive lipid profile.

This test additionally details the state of your kidneys, liver, blood count, uric acid and 40 different important elements.

The consultation with an experienced doctor will cover lifestyle and dietary changes and medication options should your cholesterol level be resistant to lifestyle improvements.

Aches & Pains

Whether you have been experiencing joint pain, back pain or muscle aches, a thorough consultation and examination with a doctor who has time to listen will help.

The doctor will either be able to tell you what is going on from examination or recommend testing and imaging required to get to the bottom of your symptoms and suggest the right person for a specialist referral or ongoing treatment.

Your quality of life matters and we will do everything we can to get to the heart of the matter with you and help you manage your discomfort.

We also offer consultations for all other conditions and a full range of medical testing.

Results

Depending on the type and scale of medical you will agree with your doctor the delivery of results.

FAQ

Do you offer ambulatory blood pressure testing?

Yes, a 24 hour blood pressure monitoring service is available at our Harley Street branch and the doctor might refer you if you feel that your blood pressure tends to fluctuate dramatically throughout the day or if you suffer from “white coat syndrome”, where you blood pressure tends to be much higher when taken by a doctor than when taken at home.

Should I get my thyroid checked?

Thyroid checks are recommended if you have a family history of thyroid disorder. Women can start experiencing thyroid-related symptoms as early as their late teens and 20s, particularly if another family member has a thyroid condition.

In general, it is recommended you begin getting regular check-ups around age 30, or at any point when you have concerns.

What causes high cholesterol?

There are a number of possible causes of high cholesterol, but it can indicate that the body is working harder than normal to maintain balance.

Certain diets (especially those high in saturated fats) can raise cholesterol levels, as can lack of exercise or overweight. In some cases, high cholesterol is inherited from family members.”
