Start the year with an MOT health check8 December, 2018
If you want to reduce the risk of a breakdown and maintain your car’s value, it’s important to check it in for an annual service or MOT – and the same is true if you want to look after your own health.
Getting an annual health check (from a health practice, not your local mechanic!) is a key way to look after your health. It can uncover a range of medical conditions and catch any problems before they develop, which not only puts your mind at rest, but also allows you to take any necessary preventative steps.
A range of one-to-one, fully confidential medical MOTs and annual check-ups are available at YourGP private health practice in Edinburgh, including our Executive Health Medical.
What’s included in an annual health check?
We are flexible and can customise our health checks to meet your individual requirements, but our most popular option is the Executive Health Medical, which only takes an hour and a half.
Costing £400, this annual check-up provides a comprehensive package of tests that focuses on the aspects of health, fitness and lifestyle that most frequently give cause for concern.
The check-up includes:
- A lifestyle and medical history questionnaire and discussion
- Height, weight and blood pressure tests
- Cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, orthopaedic and gastrointestinal assessments
- Vision and hearing checks
- An electrocardiogram (ECG) to check for heart problems
- Well Man / Well Woman checks which assess key health issues related to gender
Following the Executive Health Medical, or any of our other annual health checks, we give you an assessment of your overall health and let you know how to improve it.
And if you require further attention, we will highlight this and arrange any appropriate treatment or testing.
Annual health checks for employees
As well as offering annual health checks for individuals, we can also provide employee healthcare check-ups for businesses in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
If you’re an employer, providing healthcare support to your staff is an effective way of improving their wellbeing, performance and loyalty to your organisation. Not only that, it can also positively impact your business by reducing absence rates and saving you money.
One of the most effective ways to improve your staff’s wellbeing and guard their health is to offer them annual MOT health checks.
