Comprehensive Health Checks Available To You
Come to BBN for a health risk assessment and check-up to ensure your ongoing overall health
What is a health check?
A health check is an examination of your current state of health, often carried out by your GP. As we get older, many of us become more vulnerable to illness. In order to reduce this risk, a number of health checks or screening tests are recommended at different stages of our lives.
Why are health checks important?
The aim of health checks is to help find, prevent or lessen the effect of health issues. It’s like getting your car serviced before it breaks down. It’s better to avoid disease than to treat it. Although some checks can be uncomfortable, they provide your GP or specialist with an opportunity to look at your lifestyle, medical history and family history to find out if you’re at risk.
By having a regular doctor or practice, your medical history stays in one place, and is more likely to be kept up to date.
Prevention and the early detection of common and chronic diseases is the cornerstone of universal healthcare. We at BBN believe a full health risk assessment has many benefits. It’s always Important to plan ahead because many health checks are only available for certain age brackets.
Health risk assessment
We also do special health checks for people aged 40 to 50; these are aimed at those who are at risk of developing diseases, prevalent in that age bracket. The assessment includes blood testing for cholesterol and blood glucose, weight assessment, a full body check and an examination of family history.
We also examine lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol intake, diet and exercise.
