Health Checks


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

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.


  • I only dealt with customer service this far - a lady called Carly was super helpful. From a customer service perspective, I have nothing to complain about. Thanks again Carly!

  • Reliable, professional service. They have squeezed myself and my partner in on short notice with emergencies in the past and have now become our regular attending GP.
    Fantastic parking facilities out front. Receptionists are friendly and welcoming. The doctors are amazing and very happy to answer any questions. My partner will not see anyone else (just kidding) any other doctor we have been seen by is attentive and polite.
    Only thing is email response time recently can be a bit slow/non-existent but understandable due to the nature of the job and current ongoing pandemic (normally was immediate and all emails answered so did not deduct a star).

  • My little girl had a fall tonight and badly hurt her finger. I rushed to Rocdoc immediately with her and Dr Damien saw her straight away, was so gentle with her and cleaned her up before sending us home. I was so impressed and would highly recommend RocDoc. Thank you so much.

  • Was working in ashbourne and became very ill.Went to Roc doc and was met by receptionist. I was totally disorintated and could hardly give my personal details.The doctor saw me within minutes and put me on a nebuliser .
    He then contacted a member of my family and arranged for immediate transfer to hospital.
    I am so thankful to all the staff for their support in such difficult circumstances.
