We at Collins Medical Practice pride ourselves on being as thorough as possible and making sure you understand exactly how healthy you are and how to keep that way.

Health advice is better understood if it is written down for you in language you can understand.

If you are feeling well, but want to have a full health screen complete with your own written medical report afterwards, contact us to book an appointment (you should be able to claim most of this back from your health insurer, that is, if you have a health insurer-please contact them first to ensure this is the case).
