Health Checks

Details

The aim of health checks is to try and catch an illness or irregularities in your body before they become life affecting. An example of this is cholesterol. We have worked with many of our health check patients that had raised cholesterol previously and to date we have not needed them to take medication as they got their cholesterol back down by following our advice.

Why get a health check?

  • Prevention is better than cure….
  • Peace of mind
  • A sense of wellbeing
  • Identify illness
  • Overview of lifestyle
  • Summary of your risk factors
  • Health insurance request
  • Employer request

FAQ

The health check will be carried out by either a Doctor or an Emergency Care Practitioner and also a Nurse / Medic who will undertake part of the examination (a chaperone may also be present).   We require you first book an appointment for the full screening for a blood test, this should ideally be about a week before the second appointment.  The second appointment is for the main health check will take about 45 minutes and includes a discussion of your blood results.  You can either book both appointments together or the second appointment at the time of your bloods appointment – payment will be required in full either at booking or at your bloods appointment.

Some insurance companies offer discounts / cash back if you have health checks – please speak directly to your own provider.

Health checks /screening may be eligible for tax relief by submitting a Med 1 form to the revenue.

Testimonials

  • Went to rocdoc in Ashbourne tonight as can’t find a GP that does late surgery hoes for working people. I have to say it was the most pleasent experience ever. Service and manner was outstanding. Can’t recommend it enough. Nathan and Dave looked after me. Couldn’t ask for a better service
  • Thank you for gluing my daughters leg back together today. I wasn’t sure that it warranted getting seen to, but I am very glad I brought her down. And she is thrilled with her bravery cert, she can’t wait to show her class tomorrow
  • Hi. I had the misfortune of having to use the RocDoc service as my son burnt his arm. However, it was a great service, they were great with him, plenty of distractions to keep his mind off where he was (or why) and a lolly for his troubles as he was leaving!! It’s great having the service so close, saves a trip to *****!
