Health risks you can manage

Why you should invest in health screening.

Your health is vitally important to you - why take risks with it?

The UK government recently launched a 'call to action' which identified that health screening is needed to tackle the incidence of premature death in the UK population.

The government study identifies 'five big killers' - heart disease, strokes, cancer, and lung and liver disease which together account for 150,000 deaths a year among 40 to 75 year olds in the UK.  A high proportion of those deaths are premature and avoidable by early detection and treatment.

However, because of affordability constraints the NHS is only able to provide a very rudimentary health screening service, which will determine whether you are at statistical risk of some of these diseases, but not whether you actually have a disease.

Early accurate detection is an essential element in protecting you and your family from the majority of the causes of premature death.

Many people do not understand the risk presented by the onset of disease.  We all know people - friends and colleagues - who have been unfortunate, but human nature steers us to a 'it won't happen to me' response. Unfortunately, the onset of disease doesn't follow the same rules!  We all recognise that you would not run your car for ever without having a service check and your body should be treated in a similar manner.

At St Joseph’s Hospital we work to the principle that detecting issues early allows you to be 'fixed' before you are 'broken'.  We do that by seeing, rather than guessing and hoping.

We offer a complete range of health assessment options ranging from LifeCheck through to the very comprehensive Elite plans.

Elite Health Assessments deploy an array of the most advanced scanning techniques to conduct your health screening, and an extensive range of blood tests, but our key differentiator lies in our highly advanced diagnostic equipment.  We simply see inside your body to a level unmatched by any other health screening service outside of London.  That enables us to identify any problems at the earliest stage possible when the probability of successful treatment is at its highest.  Often the solution to early identification is merely lifestyle change, but in the event that you do need specialist treatment you have the comfort of knowing that we can arrange immediate appointments with one of our panel of specialist consultants.

With our Elite assessments you don't need to take risks with your health.
