Ramsay offers a selection of men’s health checks to choose from depending on individual requirements. You can discuss your health concerns with a member of our healthcare team and they will be able to advise you on your best health check.
Our health checks give you information about your overall health, can allow you to get early treatment if necessary, and can put your mind at ease. You will receive a detailed health report and advice on how to improve your health and lifestyle. If treatment is required, it can seamlessly be arranged at your local Ramsay hospital.
Whatever your age, you can simply book a convenient appointment for your men’s health check at regular intervals at a Ramsay hospital near you.
A male health check monitors a man’s health, detects any medical conditions early, and offers advice on ways to improve their health. These checks can identify underlying health problems early on. This allows men to make changes or have treatment that can increase their chance of a better health outcome.
Men can suffer with health issues at every stage of their lives. Regular health checks for men can help in the early detection of several conditions and diseases including prostate cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
The NHS offers health checks for men between 40 and 74 years of age. This health check gives men information about whether they are at higher risk of getting certain health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease and stroke.
Testicular cancer, although relatively uncommon, affects younger men aged 15 and 49. A private health check can include extra tests for testicular cancer, prostate cancer and urological conditions such as erectile dysfunction. They can be booked in a man’s earlier years and at regular intervals for peace of mind.
There are a number of things that should be checked during a men’s health check. They include:
Most men are tested between 40 and 74 years of age due to the free NHS health check.
However, the NHS health check does not test for testicular cancer, prostate cancer, and other men’s urological conditions such as erectile dysfunction.
Many men choose to have a health check earlier than waiting to reach 40 years of age and often in between their 5-yearly NHS health check. They use these private health checks to monitor their health and detect any medical conditions early so they can arrange early treatment if needed.
The costs of a men’s health check depend on your chosen health check package and your Ramsay hospital.
You will receive a formal quotation price for your health check following a consultation with one of our expert doctors or nurses. This formal quote will be valid for 60 days.
Ramsay is recognised by all major medical insurers. Health checks are covered by some medical insurance policies and employee renumeration packages. We advise you to obtain written authorisation from your insurance provider before your health check.
We have a number of finance options if you are paying for your men’s health check yourself. These include interest-free finance with no deposit and monthly instalments at 0% interest and pay-as-you-go.
Most men’s health check tests are non-invasive and require no recovery time afterward. You can expect to return to your daily life after your health check.
If an endoscopy or biopsy procedure are performed as part of a man’s health check, they may need to rest afterwards for a short time. Pain relief can be taken to overcome any short-term pain.
Following a comprehensive review of the endoscopy service undertaken by an expert team of assessors, the professionalism, dedication and teamwork demonstrated by the endoscopy service has resulted in the achievement of JAG accreditation for West Midlands Hospital.
People in Peterborough and across Cambridgeshire areas will benefit from faster and more precise imaging thanks to three new scanners being installed or coming soon to Fitzwilliam Hospital.
