What is health screening?

The screening packages and services we provide are designed to give you an overview of your health and identify risk factors which may cause potential health issues for you in the future. This gives you the information to be proactive about your health and make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of future problems. It may also identify conditions you weren’t aware of that will require further follow-up and investigation.


Screening provides a snapshot of certain specific aspects of your health at a point in time. It does not mean that you will not develop these conditions in the future, or that you are fully healthy and nothing else could be wrong with you. Always talk to your GP if you have symptoms that you are concerned about, either before or after screening.
