We will then send a confirmation email along with a Confidential Medical History Form to complete prior to appointment (and a timely reminder SMS).

1. Comprehensive medical check-ups

  • conducted over 2-3 consultations
  • includes cardiovascular and cancer risk assessment
  • initial appointment is 30 mins (60 mins for rural doctors)
  • follow-up appointment is 60 minutes to discuss results, complete the physical examination and discuss your areas of risk and future treatment.

We encourage a follow-up comprehensive check- up in cases where they do not have their own doctor We encourage every doctor and student to select a GP of choice in the community.

There is no substitute for regular GP support, and DHSA encourages doctors to let us do everything possible to safeguard their health.

You will need to bring your completed Confidential Medical History Form along to give to your doctor at the appointment. If you prefer to see a local community- based GP who is a member of the DHSA team, please go to our Find a GP page.

This service is suited to:

  • those doctors who have not seen a doctor for some time (and may have never had a thorough medical assessment) and
  • those who have been managing their own health without an independent assessment of their risk.
  • such check-ups attract 5 MIGA IRM points

2. Acute medical assessment

  • 30 minutes
  • for any type of presentation including acute physical or mental illness
  • follow-up appointments will be discussed and arrangements made

The service is suited to:

  • unwell doctors or students who can’t access or do not have their own doctor.

3. Periodical care

We understand that many doctors prefer a blended form of care whereby they may manage some things them self and may only seek an independent review by another doctor for certain things and only some of the time.

This service is suited to:

  • those self-treating and self-investigating doctors who really should have another doctor cast a fresh set of eyes on their problem list!

4. Telemedicine

We are currently piloting telemedicine and it is planned that appointment openings will be available at the beginning of March 2017. If you are interested in a telemedicine appointment please phone the clinic so that can be arranged.

This service is suited to:

  • the rural doctor with difficult geographical access.

Two-stage appointment

We encourage doctors and medical students without a doctor to raise any immediate areas of concern, and also to have a comprehensive check-up (we will help you to find a GP of choice for your on-going medical care).

Your medical assessment may need to be conducted over two appointments, the first of which is an initial half-hour consultation, followed by a second longer appointment to allow a full assessment by your treating doctor along with a proper discussion. If you feel a longer initial appointment is required, you can book a one-hour appointment (rural doctors especially may find this option more convenient).
