General Medical Services
The Park Clinic London provides comprehensive testing which can be adapted to fit the areas of your concern.
Health screens can help identify early stages of disease or other health issues and potential risk factors due to lifestyle or family history which may be putting your health at risk. Our aim is to help you to stay healthy and that's why we recommend our patients to undergo annual health screens.
Prior to your screen, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire to give us an idea of your lifestyle and medical history.
You will receive a report detailing the clinical findings and diagnostic results together with recommendations to improve your well being. The report will be available approximately two weeks after your appointment, which allows time for any blood test results to be returned from the laboratory.
The health screens can incorporate the following tests:
For men: PSA test is performed for the risk of prostate cancer normally over 45 years old or if clinically indicated.
For women: a female member of staff will be present during your physical examination.
* Sample containers for urine and stool analysis will be provided prior to the health screen
** Full blood screen includes:
Health screening is an essential part in maintaining health and wellbeing.
Parents in the United Kingdom are routinely offered a range of vaccinations for their children to protect them, and others, from the spread of dangerous infectious diseases.
The full range of immunisations to protect your children and others from the spread of dangerous infectious diseases is available at The Park Clinic London. The recommended immunisations, and the ages at which they are normally given can be found in the schedule below :
The 5-in-1 vaccine, also known as the DTaP/IPV/Hib vaccine, is one of the first vaccines that your baby will have. It's given as a single injection to boost your baby's protection against five different childhood diseases, diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough (pertussis), polio, and Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b). The 5-in-1 vaccine is given on three separate occasions, when babies are two, three and four months old.
This protects against pneumonia, septicaemia, meningitis (other than meningitis C) and other infections caused by the streptococcus pneumoniae bacterium, which present a heightened risk to children under the age of two. The vaccine is administered in a three-jab course when the child is two months, four months and 12-13 months old.
An oral vaccine against rotavirus infection, a common cause of diarrhoea and sickness, is given as two doses for babies aged two and three months, alongside their other routine childhood vaccinations.
The vaccine is given as a liquid from a dropper straight into the baby’s mouth for them to swallow.
Rotavirus is a highly infectious stomach bug that typically strikes babies and young children, causing an unpleasant bout of diarrhoea, sometimes with vomiting, tummy ache and fever. Most children recover at home within a few days, but nearly one in five will need to see their doctor, and one in 10 of these end up in hospital as a result of complications such as extreme dehydration. A very small number of children die from rotavirus infection each year.
The Men B vaccine is recommended for babies aged 2 months, followed by a second dose at 4 months, and a booster at 12 months.
The Men B vaccine will protect your baby against infection by meningococcal group B bacteria, which are responsible for more than 90% of meningococcal infections in young children.
Meningococcal infections can be very serious, causing meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning), which can lead to severe brain damage, amputations and, in some cases, death.
Meningitis and septicaemia caused by meningococcal group B bacteria can affect people of any age, but is most common in babies and young children.
The Men C vaccine protects against infection by meningococcal group C bacteria, which can cause two very serious illnesses, meningitis and septicaemia.
Meningococcal disease can affect all age groups, but the rates of disease are highest in children under five years of age, with the peak in babies under one year of age. There's a second peak in cases in young people aged between 15 and 19. The disease tends to strike in winter.
Babies should have their first Men C vaccine at 3 months of age.
A second dose of Men C is offered at 12 months in a combined vaccine with Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib). Please read bellow Hib/MenC Booster Vaccine.
Teenagers and first-time university students are offered Men C vaccination in a combined Men ACWY vaccine.
The Hib/Men C vaccine is given as a single injection to boost your baby's protection against two different diseases Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and meningitis C.
Hib and meningitis C infections are serious and potentially fatal and they can both cause meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning).
This vaccine protects against measles, mumps and rubella. It’s administered at 12-13 months, together with the Hib/MenC booster and pneumococcal vaccines, and again at about 3 years 4 months of age or soon thereafter.
We also offer single MMR vaccine
The flu vaccine for children is given as a single dose of nasal spray squirted up each nostril. Not only is it needle-free (a big advantage for children), the nasal spray works even better than the injected flu vaccine.
It’s quick and painless and will mean your child is less likely to become ill if they come into contact with the flu virus.
Officially known as the DTaP/IPV booster, this protects against diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and polio, and is given together with the MMR vaccine at about 3 years 4 months of age or shortly thereafter.
In addition to these routine immunisations, there are a range of vaccines available for babies and children who may be at special risk, including tuberculosis, flu, and hepatitis B.
The BCG vaccine (which stands for Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine) is not given as part of the routine NHS childhood vaccination schedule unless a baby is thought to have an increased risk of coming into contact with TB.
This includes all babies born in some areas of inner-city London where TB rates are higher than in the rest of the country.
BCG vaccination may also be recommended for older children who have an increased risk of developing TB, such as:
• children who have recently arrived from countries with high levels of TB
• children who have come into close contact with somebody infected with respiratory TB
BCG vaccination is rarely given to anyone over the age of 16 - and never over the age of 35, because it doesn't work very well in adults. It is, however, given to adults aged between 16 and 35 who are at risk of TB through their work, such as some healthcare workers.
All girls aged 12 to 13 are offered HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccination as part of the NHS childhood vaccination programme. The vaccine protects against cervical cancer. It's usually given to girls in year eight at schools in England.
According to Cancer Research UK, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women under the age of 35. In the UK, 2,900 women a year are diagnosed with cervical cancer, that's around eight women every day.
Vaccination helps to prevent travellers from catching diseases to which they may be exposed in foreign countries. Some vaccinations are compulsory.

Current allergy management aims to identify the causative agent (the “allergen”) and then to remove it from the affected person’s environment. If avoidance measures cannot be implemented the sufferer may need to use preventer and reliever allergies medication. Occasionally desensitisation is used to induce allergen tolerance and reduce the intensity of the allergic reaction.
