At Essex Private Doctors we provide patients with a top-to-toe health screening service.  Think of it as an MOT for your body.  This includes a thorough examination designed to provide a clear picture of your current health and to detect future health problems at the earliest possible stage.

Our Well-Man and Well-Woman Health Screens are available as comprehensive packages.  Each includes all of the items listed on the right, as well as a private consultation with one of our experienced GPs.
