Screening is the targeted systematic action designed to identify diseases or pre-clinical conditions in individuals who believe they are healthy but who may in fact be at risk of a specific health impairment, and who could benefit from early treatment (or other intervention).
Why do we need to do heath screening?
- To identify individuals who may be at risk of a specific disease or medical condition early.
- With early detection, regular screenings can detect a disease or medical condition before it advances to a more serious problem.
- By keeping your screening records with you, you are able to engage with your family GP or doctor and evaluate your health status constantly.
