Executive Health Screen for Women (from £530)
An executive medical or executive health check-up for women is a comprehensive medical examination designed specifically for busy professionals or executives. These health check-ups are tailored to evaluate overall health, detect any potential health risks or conditions and provide personalised recommendations for maintaining optimal well-being.
The specific components of an executive medical may vary depending on the clinician or facility offering the service; here are some common elements often included in an executive health check-up for women:
Medical History Review
The clinician will review your medical history, including any existing health conditions, medications and past surgeries. Special attention may be given to women’s health issues such as gynaecological history, pregnancy history and menopause-related symptoms.
A thorough physical examination will be conducted, including measurements of height, weight, blood pressure, and body mass index (BMI). Breast and pelvic examinations may also be performed.
A comprehensive set of laboratory tests may be conducted, including blood tests to evaluate cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, liver and kidney function, thyroid function and other important markers. Urine and stool samples may also be collected for analysis.
This may include a Pap smear to screen for cervical cancer, a pelvic ultrasound to assess the reproductive organs, and discussions about contraception, family planning, or menopause management.
Breast Health Assessment
A clinical breast examination may be performed to check for any abnormalities, and in some cases, a mammogram or breast ultrasound may be recommended for breast cancer screening.
Depending on age and risk factors, screening tests for certain cancers may be recommended, such as breast cancer screening, cervical cancer screening, colorectal cancer screening, or lung cancer screening (for smokers or those with a history of smoking).
Bone Health Assessment
Bone density testing (DEXA scan) may be conducted to assess bone health and screen for osteoporosis.
In some cases, imaging studies like X-rays, ultrasound, or other scans may be performed to evaluate specific areas of concern or screen for certain conditions.
Vision and Hearing Tests
Basic assessments of vision and hearing may be included.
The clinician may offer advice and recommendations regarding diet, exercise, stress management, sleep habits, and other lifestyle factors that impact overall health. Additionally, discussions about reproductive health, contraception, and menopause management may take place.
After the examination and test results, a follow-up phone call will typically be scheduled to discuss the findings, provide personalised health recommendations and address any concerns or questions you may have.
It is important to note that the specific tests and procedures included in a medical can vary based on individual needs, age and risk factors.
