The last thing that you want to do is to miss out on quality healthcare when you are ill in Spain. At Medcare, the team of doctors, nurses and clinicians are committed to providing a total healthcare service for the whole family in English and which is based on UK Department of Health guidelines, so you don’t have to forgo a quality British-led service. It is an oft used expression, but at Medcare we believe that prevention is better than any cure, and that regular health checks can detect the early signs of cancers, diabetes and heart disease. With this in mind, Medcare’s service includes Well Man and Well Woman health checks.
Find our below what the Health Check inlcludes and how it might help you.
If you are a man you have a one in 14 lifetime risk of developing prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men in the UK. Cancer is rare in men under 50, but if diagnosed early, treatment can be successful; therefore it is important to have routine checks. Being male means you are also more susceptible to heart disease and high blood pressure.
If you are a woman, it is important to be regularly screened for early detection of cervical cancer, particularly if you aged between 25 and 65. A Well Woman check includes having a smear test along with a breast examination, advice on lifestyle, contraception, HRT and weight management
Regardless of your gender, you may be one of the 1 million people from the UK who have diabetes and are unaware. Did you know that on average it is nine years before someone is diagnosed with diabetes?

Why are health checks important?
With Medcare’s Health Check you benefit from a full review of your medical history and a lifestyle questionnaire as well as extensive blood tests and checks. You will also benefit from a full medical examination with a clinician resulting in an action plan and practical advice for medication, lifestyle and nutrition.
In both men and women a simple blood test can detect liver and kidney disease, anaemia, infection, high cholesterol and diabetes to name a few. The latter two, especially when in combination with high blood pressure, are major risk factors for heart attacks and stroke. An ECG can tell us a lot about the heart, including potentially dangerous abnormal rhythms. It can even detect heart problems.
Medcare is the leading choice for medical, dental and cosmetic treatments on the Costa Blanca and can assist with all aspects of your health care in Spain, including hospital referrals to give you total peace of mind.
Usually Medcare’s extensive Health Check for men or women costs 310 euros. However, our New Year offer for January will be at the amazing low price of just 210 euros! That’s a whopping 33% off the usual price!!
Many thousands of people die unnecessarily every year from diseases that could have been treated if diagnosed early enough. And the best way to diagnose disease early, usually before symptoms have even presented, is through regular health screening.
Our senior GP, Dr Najma Hussain, is committed to health screening, and that is why we are offering this discounted health check. She says: “Tragically, I see too many people die needlessly because disease is detected far too late for want of a few simple tests.
“Many British expats on the Costa Blanca seem to be particularly vulnerable because language barriers or not knowing what health screening is available means they are even less likely to attend for screening.”
“Over the years our health checks have saved lives as patients have discovered they have the early stages of disease. It is not easy finding out you have a life-threatening illness, but not finding out will almost certainly be a lot worse.”
Routine health checks and early diagnosis can stop some of the biggest killers from claiming lives – including heart disease, prostate cancer, cervical cancer and breast cancer.
