There has been a lot written about annual health screenings and their importance in the early detection of medical issues.
We all live faster, busier lives than ever before - lifestyles which can make us more prone to health risks. We’ve already spoken about self-care, but how can regular, comprehensive screenings improve your quality of life?
An annual health screen can give you peace of mind and a goal to improve your daily routine and lead a healthier life. Early detection of major diseases has also been proven to improve mortality rates.
Have you ever thought about combining a break overseas with an annual health check-up? Many overseas healthcare providers are specialists in quick, thorough check-ups in some of the world’s most relaxing locations.
The internationally accredited Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand has become well-known as one of the best in Asia. The hospital offers state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic and intensive care facilities, and specialises in annual health screenings for overseas patients. Over half of their 1.1 million patients each year are international.
Their comprehensive check-up package (including blood and cholesterol tests, major organ functions, x-rays, ultrasound and specific tests for men and women) are all completed in 4 to 6 hours and the results provided in 24 hours. The modern, westernised hospital looks and acts like a hotel, even down to level of luxury available in their suites and deluxe rooms, should you wish to (or need to) stay the night.
Malaysia has also become a hotspot for international travellers to visit for annual health screenings. Kuala Lumpur and Penang, both popular tourist destinations have a host of internationally acclaimed medical facilities that specialise in medical tourism.
