A woman’s health is a very personal matter, at the Specialist Medical Clinic we provide complete discretion and a sympathetic approach.

At the Specialist Medical Clinic we offer three levels of assessment.  These are: 

  • Cardiovascular and Lifestyle Check, 
  • Well Woman Health Check

Our most commonly requested female package is the Well Woman Health Check, prior to the appointment you will be asked to complete a comprehensive questionnaire providing detailed information about your past medical history.

The package includes the following services:

  • An initial, one-hour examination session with a female GP. 
  • Height and weight, waist and hip measurements (to calculate BMI, height / waist ratio and body fat composition. 
  • Blood pressure assessment plus the information required to calculate Body Mass Index (BMI) and cardiovascular risk for the next 5 to 10 years.

  • Abdominal and gynaecological examination (including cervical smear). 
  • If indicated, vaginal swabs may be taken.
  • Blood tests including Full Blood Count, Total Cholesterol and HDL cholesterol, Liver Function Tests and Urea and Creatinine (kidney function).
  • A stool test to detect blood (screening for early bowel cancer).
  • Urine analysis to check for blood, glucose or protein.

Once the results are available you will be invited to attend for a second consultation during which your results will be discussed and you will receive a full written report provided.

During the second consultation appropriate lifestyle advice and medical recommendations are discussed and if necessary further tests or treatments recommended.
