Corporate Services

We provide a range of corporate services including:

Executive Health Screening

Executive health screens are recommended for employees over the age of 40 routinely but can be carried out for younger employees too. Typically these medicals will take a similar format to the standard practice health screens, but they can also be tailored to meet the specific needs and budget of a company.

Our standard health screening package includes the following:

Review of current concerns:

Review of Past History:   Medical/Surgical/Family and Social (i.e travel, alcohol, tobacco, sleep patterns etc)

Blood Investigations:   Tests for anaemia, gout, diabetes, cholesterol, kidney function, liver function, thyroid function, and infection status.

Full Physical Examination:   Eyes, Head, Ears, Nose, Throat, Mouth, Skin, Hair, Pulse, Blood Pressure, Chest, Abdomen, Spine, Leg and Arm Reflexes, Weight and Height.

Further tests can be included as standard or arranged ad hoc if clinically indicated.

Pre-Employment Medical Examinations

Routine pre-employment medicals take 30 minutes and take the form of a basic clinical examination and assessment. More detailed assessments can be organised where appropriate to suit the needs of the company or insurance provider.

Hotel Advisory and Treatment Service for Guests and Staff

The Clinic offers same day appointments for local hotels and their guests and staff. Contracts are dependent upon location and must be discussed in advance with the Manager. All appointments are based at the Clinic.

Travel Clinic

The practice offers a full travel vaccination and advice service, with the latest on-line information from the Hospital for Tropical Diseases and other internet health resources. The practice nurse can usually provide a same-day appointment service for patients and their colleagues.

A full history will be taken, and vaccination records noted. Specific travel advice will be given on the destination country or countries, as well as more general advice on travelling abroad. Appropriate anti-malarial advice and relevant prescriptions will also be offered where necessary.

Patients should consult with the practice nurse at least 6-8 weeks before departure where possible to allow sufficient time for appropriate courses of treatment.
