Comprehensive health screening

Health Screening

Although not related to cosmetic surgery we feel this service may be of benefit to those with any health concerns and/or long NHS waiting lists, sloppy service etc.

Comprehensive screening is a unique test that is used to diagnose diseases which might already be present but without showing any clinical symptoms. A preventive health examination enables our Dr’s to catch any potential diseases when in the very earliest stages. Examination of physical ailments is seen in close connection with the psyche, which often accompanies physical symptom or the cause.

How long does the comprehensive screening procedure take?

Comprehensive screening can be carried out in one full day. However before the comprehensive examination begins each client is invited to a brief initial interview, during which he/she will be acquainted in detail with what’s involved during the examination procedure.
