A combination of long working hours, stress, bad diet and lack of exercise are the hallmarks of modern society and can lead to a plethora of health problems. It makes sense to us to combat health problems before they start.

Health screening is a relatively new addition to healthcare in Ireland but is gaining momentum as people realise the importance of being proactive about their health. Health screening puts you in control of your health by identifying areas that need attention. Health screening can also offer early detection for a variety of problems such as cancers and cardiac problems. Early detection is key for the successful treatment of these diseases.

Charter Medical, a new health and wellness facility in Smithfield Market, is setting a new standard, offering personalised health and wellness packages designed to help you take control of your health. As well as checking your overall health and fitness levels and offering advice on leading a healthier lifestyle, a Charter Medical health screening can offer early detection for a variety of problems.
