What is a Health Screening?
A private health screening is a set of tailored tests and examinations that give you an overview of your current health.
It’s usually recommended to have one every year, but depending on your age, lifestyle, and family history, your doctor may suggest more frequent screenings.

Why Should I Get One?
A private health screening provides peace of mind by giving you an overview of your current state of physical wellbeing—something that can be particularly useful if you are concerned about any existing symptoms or have any family history of illness that may put you at greater risk than average.
It also helps identify any potential issues early so they can be addressed before they become serious problems—for example, high cholesterol could signify the onset of heart disease in later life.
Finally, having regular check-ups helps maintain healthy habits—such as eating well and exercising regularly—which can ultimately lead to improved overall wellbeing long-term.
