Health screening – is it worth it?


Taking care of your physical health is essential for living a fulfilling life. At Central Health, we believe in
being proactive about your well-being and strive to help all of our patients improve their overall health,
regardless of age or medical conditions. Our approach to healthcare is centered on looking at your
entire lifestyle and identifying areas where we can help you make improvements.


It’s not good enough to wait until you have the symptoms of a disease when it could have been
prevented in the first place. By identifying potential health issues early on, we can help you take action
and achieve a better outcome in the long term. Many significant health conditions such as high blood
pressure or high cholesterol, may not have any symptoms at all. It’s often possible to feel fine even if
there is an underlying issue that needs to be addressed. Similarly, cancer can go undetected for years,
making prevention and early detection critical.


We understand that some people may simply want the reassurance that they’re not suffering from a
serious condition. Fortunately, this is usually the case for most people doing a well man or well woman
check-up. Conversely, if a health screening does identify something significant, you now have the
information you need to take action and address the issue. Many people find themselves in better
overall shape thanks to the information from a health screen and subsequent changes to their lifestyle.


Although there are some downsides to health screenings, such as false positives or negatives, the
advantages far outweigh the potential risks. Even a comprehensive checkup takes up a small fraction of
your time each year and can significantly impact your future health.


It’s worth noting that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to health screenings. Our doctors consider
your specific risk factors, demographics, and medical history before selecting from a number of different
packages and additional tests that are tailored to your needs.


We believe that our comprehensive health screenings and laboratory packages are an excellent way to
prioritize your physical well-being. Our doctors are committed to using evidence-based tactics and the
latest technology to help you achieve optimal health. If you’re looking for an efficient and accurate
assessment of your overall health, book a screening with one of our GPs.

To prepare for your Health Screen

  • You should be well rested and fasting. This means no food or drink (except water) from midnight the night before.
  • Bring your list of questions and past results if you have them.
  • Be prepared to spend a little time with us, it’s only once a year! Depending on the package you select, you can expect to be in the clinic for 1-2 hours.
  • You will be sent a copy of all your results (and a written report if you selected the comprehensive health screen). If you want a follow up discussion with your doctor (which is included in the comprehensive health screen) please make an additional appointment.

Common questions about
Health Checks

Can I add other blood tests?

Yes. During your Health check with your doctor, you can decide together on other tests that may be more specific for you. Please ask the nurse for the extra costs.

Can I add other imaging investigations?

Yes. It is common for female patients, for example, to add breast imaging to their health check.

What if I do not want to do all the tests listed?

We cannot deduct any tests from the package, nor reduce the price. The comprehensive health check is a fixed set of tests. Only the female Pap Smear & HPV screening is optional.

Can I reduce the time required? I am unable to allocate 2 hours of my time.

The most important time is with your doctor. Let us know if you wish to come back at another date or time for the investigations. You need to fast for both the blood tests and scans.

Is this the only health check available at Central Health?

No. If you do not have time, the tests are too comprehensive, or the tests are not as specific to your health screen needs as you wish, discuss with your doctor other blood test packages and other screening options.
