Why is health screening important?

Health screening is the first step for you to safeguard your health.

Many chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, do not show symptoms at an early stage, and are often called ‘silent killers’.

Getting a health screening helps to pick up early signs of disease or underlying medical problems, so you can seek treatment promptly to prevent further progression.

Even if you feel well, regular health screening allows you to keep track of your health status, giving you peace of mind to continue living your best life.

Health screening should be done on a regular basis. If you’re generally in good health, you can consider doing a health screening once a year.

As the recommended screening frequency varies depending on your gender, age group and risk profile, please speak to your doctor for advice on the screening tests that are most suitable for you and how often you should go for health screening.

You can do health screening at any Parkway Shenton clinic in Singapore. Use our clinic locator to find a clinic near you.

Health screening can take anywhere between 1 hour to a day to complete, depending on the number of tests done. Basic health screening typically takes around 30 minutes to 2 hours at our GP clinics.

Yes, you can opt for additional tests and services. Simply enquire with our clinic staff when booking your appointment.

Please bring your identification documents (NRIC, passport, company’s letter or staff pass) for registration. For a more accurate analysis, do also bring along any past medical reports and scan results.

If you’re doing a vision test, please bring your spectacles and do not wear contact lenses when you come for your appointment.

As certain tests require access to your arms or other body parts, it is advisable to wear a comfortable two-piece outfit with short sleeves. Bring along sports attire to change into if you’re doing the cardiac treadmill stress electrocardiogram (ECG). We provide sports shoes and socks upon request.

For ladies, kindly avoid wearing perfume or deodorant on the day of your mammogram.

Try to get a good night’s rest, and avoid doing any strenuous activities right before your health check-up. It is also best to refrain from alcohol and caffeinated drinks on the day of screening, as they may affect the accuracy of your test results.

Fasting is required for blood tests and certain tests like abdomen ultrasound. Please abstain from food and drinks for at least 10 hours before your appointment. Drinking plain water is allowed. If you’re unsure if fasting is required, please check directly with our clinic staff.

You may need to stop taking certain medications like beta-blockers or diabetes medication a day or 2 before your health check-up. For more details, refer to our pre-screening guidelines.

Please seek your doctor’s advice before stopping any medications, especially if you are on insulin injections for Type 1 diabetes mellitus.
