Men need regular health checks. Medical check-ups help you stay healthy, talk about any concerns and pick up early warning signs of disease or illness.
When you have a health check, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history, your family’s history of disease and your lifestyle. They will also talk to you about your diet, your weight, how much you exercise and whether you smoke or drink.
If you have high risk factors, it may be more likely that you will develop a particular disease. Regular check-ups may help your doctor pick up early warning signs. For example, high blood pressure may be an early warning sign of cardiovascular disease.
Women are recommended to have a general check-up with their GP every year. Part of the check-up will involve talking to your doctor about your medical history, your family’s history of disease and your lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise habits and whether or not you smoke or drink alcohol.
Health checks from your GP can include: Cervical Screening Test , STI screening and pregnancy check-ups. You may need other regular tests not listed here, depending on your personal or family medical history. Ask our GP for further information.
ECG - Heart Checks
If you have certain risk factors for heart disease, your doctor may recommend that you have heart health checks. These may include: blood pressure checks, blood tests, obesity tests. We are also able to conduct electrocardiogram (ECG) checks.
This is a non-invasive and painless medical test that detects cardiac (heart) abnormalities by measuring the electrical activity generated by the heart as it contracts. If you are aged over 50 years, your doctor may recommend an ECG test every two to five years, depending on your health and medical history. Tell your doctor if you have an irregular heart beat or are aware of your heart beat other than when you exercise.
Immunisation prevents many illnesses in children and adults. Immunising yourself or your children is important for not only your health, but also for the health of your community because when enough people are immunised diseases no longer spread.
If you want to know more about immunisation – how it works, what vaccinations you need and what the possible side effects are, speak with our GP.
Our GP can perform minor surgical procedures, under local anaesthetic, within in our well appointed operating theatre. Our patients appreciate the convenience of treatment at a time that suits them, with easy access to our community surgery and a quick return to their home or work.
All procedures are undertaken with hospital standard attention to equipment, sterilisation practices and protocols. Your doctor will take great care in explaining the character of your procedure and any follow-on treatment required.
The sooner a skin cancer is identified and treated, the better your chance of avoiding surgery or, in the case of a serious melanoma or other skin cancer, potential disfigurement or even death. It is also a good idea to talk to our GP about your level of risk and for advice on early detection.
It's important to get to know your skin and what is normal for you, so that you notice any changes. Skin cancers rarely hurt and are much more frequently seen than felt. It also doesn’t hurt to develop a regular habit of checking your skin for new spots and changes to existing freckles or moles.
