On the day of the private executive medical

A car will pick you up and chauffeur you to the medical centre. We usually schedule executive medicals for the morning sessions, as we like you to attend Fasting i.e., nothing to eat or drink for the preceding 8-10 hours. It is easier to do this whilst asleep, and this allows your body’s metabolism to achieve baseline levels. Please note if you have a medical condition that may be affected by this, or you are on any medication, you should discuss this by phone or email with the Doctor/Coordinator before attending / embarking on your fast.

On arrival, you will initially be seen by the Nurse, who will do some baseline measurements and take an extensive range of Blood Tests. The tests included where applicable are listed below – if you have any additional blood test requirements we can also do these at this stage.

We then offer you a healthy breakfast with a chance to catch the morning headlines in the paper. If you have any particular dietary requirements we will try to accommodate you.

You then have a full medical with the Doctor, which includes a full Medical History and Examination. We have both male & female doctors and personal examinations may be chaperoned. Obviously, if there is any part of the examination that you do not require it is entirely at your discretion and we will honour this (for e.g. recent Pap smear or prostate test). You then have an Audiometric Screen (hearing test) and Full Vision Screen (please bring your spectacles / lenses if you use same). We then finish off the examinations with a Resting ECG.

Your age, family history, lifestyle, medical history, symptoms or other risk factors may necessitate additional tests or screenings. These additional screenings are done at this stage of the medical. Additional screenings may include a Lung Function Test and or chest x-ray, bone density or a colonoscopy.

Your next session focuses on a healthy lifestyle to promote overall quality of life. A lifestyle with good dietary habits and fitness routines is important to achieve this. Your nutrition and fitness consultations are conducted with the aim of providing personalised recommendations for good health, disease management and weight control.

By now you are ready to unwind, with your optional Stress Management session. This session is meant to be a collaborative one which focuses on work life balance and offers guidance on improving emotional wellness. You then finish with a relaxing massage and light lunch before your briefing on the primary prevention plan.

What happens after the private executive medical?

The Doctor will collate your results and prepare an individual primary prevention plan which will be explained to you at the end of the medical or forwarded to you (using your preferred method of communication). It will provide details of the potential health risks along with an action plan giving advice on diet, lifestyle and further action for any abnormalities. Any advice or suggestions can be followed up, either with us or your GP.

We aim to make your medical an enjoyable and educational experience.
