Medicals

At Glasgow Medical Rooms we believe in being proactive about healthcare, rather than just reactive. Currently the shift in our society is moving towards prevention and wellbeing in terms of individual health, and so we offer a number of different private medical services on an individual and corporate basis.

Employment medical

We work with companies to protect both organisations and their staff through thorough medical examinations. Private medicals can be tailor-made to meet precise HR requirements if necessary, and with a flexible appointment system in place, we should be able to accommodate any requests.

Employment medical assessments usually take the form of the following:

  • Comprehensive medical history including lifestyle, past medical problems and medication taken
  • A full medical examination including assessment of the gastrointestinal system, cardiovascular system and respiratory systems
  • Height, weight, BMI and blood pressure check
  • Blood tests for screening including full blood count, liver function and cholesterol
  • Vision and hearing checks
  • An ECG to check heart rate and rhythm

Travel medical

Depending on your circumstances, it may be necessary to receive a medical in order to complete your visa and therefore be granted access to your chosen holiday or business travel destination. Glasgow Medical Rooms can help with this. We provide extensive travel medical appointments lasting around 1 hour depending on the type of visa required. Please see our travel page for more information or click here to download visa forms.

Well woman/well man medical

These are comprehensive medical tests which look into general health and wellbeing as well as a targeted medical history. Each medical also screens for medical issues which are respective to each gender, such as cervical or prostate health. For more information, please see our well man or well woman pages.
