Medical services tailored for Women
The emphasis in healthcare has moved focus to prevention and wellbeing. A full understanding of available screening tests ensures that women are empowered from adolescence to menopause and onwards, to be active participants in their wellbeing.
As such, Glasgow Medical Rooms provides a number of private medical services tailored specifically for women. These include:
Well Woman Medical
A Well Woman Screen is a fully comprehensive medical examination including screening tests for the early detection of medical conditions and diseases to offer you peace of mind about your health. It is focused at the female organs and will also include a full sexual health screen if required.
Well Woman Screens provide you with a discrete opportunity to discuss any health concerns you have with a private GP and seek medical advice in a confidential setting.
Breast Cancer Screening
Over 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK. The likelihood of developing breast cancer depends on a number of factors including things like age, genes, alcohol intake, hormones and much more. However far more patients who are diagnosed with the illness are surviving it, due to more effective treatment and better detection at an early stage.
It’s not always easy to get an NHS GP appointment, certainly not as quickly as you might like. At Glasgow Medical Rooms, we offer same day private GP appointments which can include consultations, breast screening examinations, advice and urgent referrals for ultrasounds and mammograms if necessary. To make an appointment.
The Pap smear or Cervical smear test is now the most important screening test to prevent cervical cancer. It is advised that women regularly book in an appointment for a smear test every 3 years, and sooner if abnormal cells are shown. Smear tests are recommended for women from the age of 18 and above, or earlier if they are sexually active.
I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.Linnea Blair
“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”Mrs Johnston
We took our 2 year old son in to see Dr O’Neill for a meningitis B vaccination recently. Due to shortages of the vaccine, we had been on a waiting list with a well-known high street pharmacist for months without knowing when they would get stock in. We came across Glasgow Medical Rooms who had the vaccination and we managed to get our son booked in the next day. The clinic was very smart and easy to access in the city centre too. Dr O’Neill was great at dealing with our toddler. It was a relief to get the jabs sorted so quickly and would highly recommend the service to others.”Mrs Crawford
“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”GMK Group
