ON CALL Cancer Screening

On-Call Doctors can provide a number of specialist blood tests that can be an aid to the detection of cancer.  Its important to realise that a blood test on its own without a discussion about symptoms, family history, or examination is generally not helpful.  If you have specific concerns around cancer, we would urge you to speak to one of our doctors beforehand.

If you have any concerns about cancer, please make an appointment

ON CALL Prostate Cancer Check

The prostate is a gland in men that is situated between the bladder and the penis.  Its function is primarily to nourish and protect sperm.  Normally it is around the size of a walnut.  As men age it is normal for the prostate to increase in size.  The increase in size can affect urination- meaning you may get up at night several times to pass urine or notice that the flow of urine is weaker.  Other symptoms may include waiting to start urination or the slowing of urination especially as you are finishing.

To check for prostate cancer the doctor will need to review your symptoms, then examine your prostate and check the PSA- the hormone that can be associated with prostate cancer.

ON CALL Comprehensive Prostate Check

£150

Includes review of symptoms + physical examination of the prostate + PSA hormone blood test

FAQs

How do we take samples?

For blood samples you will see one of our health care professionals for a 10-15-minute appointment who will take samples and arrange transport to our laboratory.  For samples such as urine or faeces you can simply collect the sample in the specified bottle (please call us and we can provide this), and we can analyse them once received.

What can we test for?

We can test blood, urine, faeces, and samples of e.g. skin.  Through blood tests we can assess how well vital organs are working e.g. kidneys and liver.  We can also check for common diseases such as anaemia, diabetes, over or underactive thyroid and rheumatoid arthritis to name a few.

We can check for low levels of certain salts in the blood and levels of vitamins e.g. vitamin D, vitamin B12.

We can also analyse swabs to check for infections e.g. eye/ear or swabs to check for sexual infections.

How long do I wait for results?

The speed with which your results come back depends on the type of test that is done.  This can range between 24 hrs to more than a week for some specialist tests.  

Can I get copies of my test results?

Yes.  We can provide you with electronic copies of your results.

Can I get private tests without a referral from my NHS doctor?

Yes.  You have the choice to see any of our private GPs and get tested without a referral.  Our own GPs can refer on to our own specialists if required.   

Do you communicate with my NHS doctor?

Your notes and results belong to you -and if you want us to send results to your NHS doctor, we can send these electronically with your consent.
