The aim of screening is to identify possible diseases before symptoms or problems occur so that the diseases can be treated more successfully.
The investigation usually comprises an exercise ECG and a resting ECG to exclude any cardiovascular risk factors.
An ECG (electrocardiogram) records your heart’s electrical activity. It can also indicate the early signs of a heart attack or a heart-related circulatory problem. The investigation is safe and painless.
We then carry out blood tests to investigate further cardiovascular risk factors, including cholesterol and blood glucose levels as well as important parameters relating to internal organs (liver, kidneys).
To achieve the best possible benefit from the check, you will first have a discussion with medical staff to assess your current status before undergoing further useful investigations.
We recommend that men over the age of 40 years and women over the age of 45 years book a customised screening appointment.
