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.

  • Tony was a great help and sorted out my change of appointment time very efficiently. Thank you so much!

    I did require assistance yesterday also in the bookings and a lovely girl was very patient and helped me sort the bookings out.

  • Tony is the one and only person who has answered my question in regard my desire to have an RT-PCR test that does not involve poking and prodding up my nose. I've had two of these so far and they just hurt like hell, during and after. So, knowing that RocDoc can do a throat swab instead is such a relief. Thank you Tony! Maggie

  • Getting an appointment via the website is easy and straight forward.
    You get your time slot and I did not have to wait which was great.
    The staff is very calm, friendly and nice.
    The women who did the test for me was very professional and polite. It did not hurt at all.

  • Absolutely fantastic customer care support, the agent I spoke to on the phone (Kyrsty) was really helpful! Even though her shift had finished during our conversation, she took the time to answer all my questions patiently. I will be booking with RocDoc soon before I travel.

  • Test results: received my results in less than 24 hours!! I had test at 22.15 on a Friday, received email with saying test was in progress, on Saturday at 18.53 received email with results (so got my results in less than 24 hours).

    Certificate: you have option to generate PDF and they send another email so you can print it out.

    The physical test: The tester was very gentle, explained everything. I felt nothing only a slight tickle in my nose for 5 seconds. This is not painful whatsoever. Bring your ID, it’s checked twice.

    Customer Service: excellent. I had to call twice about more the tech side and in terms of setting up my account and buying tests and they helped.

    Creating Account I would like an App rather than going onto website to log on. (Maybe there is one but I couldn’t find it)

    Price: In general the pricing for all of this should be cheaper. This company is one of the cheapest.

  • I've been tested once and have booked in for a second test. It would be very easy for this whole testing process to feel like an effort to profit from something awful, but the RocDoc team are amazing. The chat care is fantastic and I've had nothing but great assistance the whole way through. Well done to the team.

  • I emailed RocDoc about their procedures around testing young children two separate times (nervous mama), and both Sarah and Naomi were prompt, helpful and incredibly kind. I feel at ease, and more comfortable about arriving for testing in a few weeks. So grateful.
