You’ll have to pay for tests at a private clinic, which can be expensive.
A well man clinic isn’t a replacement for your GP. If you’re ill or need medical advice, see your GP.
What health checks do well man clinics offer?
The range of tests and health checks may vary between clinics, but any of the following may be assessed:
- your lifestyle, including diet, exercise, alcohol and smoking
- medical history
- weight and height
- blood pressure
- a urine test for diabetes or kidney infection
- hearing and vision
- lung function
- an electrocardiogram (ECG) to check for heart problems
- a chest X-ray, if you’re a heavy smoker
