Health Screening

Health screening aims to determine an individual’s health status. It can be invaluable in detecting potentially life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes before they do serious damage.

Our health screens at Mount Stuart Hospital offer a clear and detailed picture of an individual’s current health, together with advice on how to increase good health and quality of life in the future.

Why have a health screen?

The number one reason for having a health screen is peace of mind. Even though an individual may not feel ill, they may be worried about certain health issues, so a relaxed and unhurried consultation with the health screening doctor to talk about their health concerns can be very reassuring.

What does a health screen involve?

Questionnaires detailing lifestyle, medical history and family history form the basis of discussion with the nurse, giving a review of any previous medical illness, present medical symptoms and medications. This discussion provides an opportunity for the individual to talk through any questions or concerns. The nurse also conducts a physical examination. Laboratory tests are carried out, including blood and urine tests, that give an internal status not easily detected by physical
examination. A personalised health report with advice to help minimise future health risks and
giving practical guidance is then sent to the individual.
