Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I need a Well Woman health check?
Awareness and early diagnosis can be crucial to successfully treating or managing many serious health concerns, so a regular check-up is always advised. However, you may want to arrange a Well Woman health screening if you’ve recently begun experiencing symptoms such as irregular periods, abnormal bleeding or discharge, persistent pelvic pain or recurrent UTIs or thrush. Dr Hazell has a post-graduate diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology and has close ties with leading specialists in this field.
What blood tests are carried out?
Our blood tests check for thyroid and kidney function, iron and calcium levels, as well as any vitamin or mineral deficiencies.
What information do you need in advance of my Well Woman health check?
If it’s your first health check with Dr Adam Hazell, you will be sent a questionnaire, covering your personal and family history and any medication you’re currently taking or any medical treatment you’re currently undergoing. You will be advised to fast ahead of your appointment as we will be taking a full blood screening.
