It’s the key to your future health, the passport to possibly seeing your children graduate, get married or have grandchildren. It’s the gift of peace of mind. It’s about catching things early. It’s about having the best chance of being as healthy as you can possibly be, for as long as you possibly can.
I’m talking about a Health Assessment – these intensive screening programmes can be bought as a stand-alone item (you don’t need health insurance to access these private hospital based tests) and gives you a clear picture of your health at this present time.
It’s more than just blood tests and fitness checks. You can choose to have full body scans, mammograms, ECGs and chest X-rays. It basically gives you access to all the life-saving checks a doctor won’t give you until there’s a symptomatic problem.
And that’s why Health Assessments are valid even when you’re feeling well. Because when it comes to diseases like cancer, we all know catching it early gives you the best prognosis you can get. Early detection, followed by treatment and good control of the condition can result in better outcomes, and lowers the risk of serious complications. It is therefore important to get yourself screened even if you feel perfectly healthy.
It’s an original gift – and gives a money-can’t-buy outcome: better health.
