Did you know that in England during the first month of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a 30% decrease in primary care consultations? A population-based study recently published in The Lancet looks at how the pandemic might have worsened physical health and highlights what the researchers are calling ‘missed opportunities for care’.
Priorities have understandably changed during this time, and there might be a few things you have put on the back burner. Your health, however, is one thing you should always prioritise. With the UK slowly returning to normal, now is the perfect time to have an annual health screening. This way, you can check in with how your health is doing and know if there are any potential issues you should be aware of before you embark upon a somewhat busier lifestyle.
Annual health screenings are here to identify risks, help diagnose disease at an early stage and encourage you to make positive lifestyle changes in order to protect your future health. If you are new to health screenings, our dedicated team of consultants and nurses at London Medical are here to guide you through the process. They are always on hand to answer your questions and put your mind at ease.
Screenings take place in our comfortable, discreet, COVID-safe clinic and include a range of non-invasive tests to help you gain a clear understanding of how your health is doing. It’s natural that you may feel nervous about having a health screening, however it can help to safeguard your overall health, and our expert team will provide you with support and bespoke treatment throughout.
We recommend that patients book their health check every year to keep a close eye on their health and wellbeing. Find out more by visiting our website here: https://londonmedical.co.uk/home/health-checks/
