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 health screening?
1. To identify individuals who may be at risk of a specific disease or medical condition early.
2. With early detection, regular screenings can detect a disease or medical condition before it advances to a more serious problem.
3. By keeping your screening records with you, you are able to engage with your family GP or doctor and evaluate your health status constantly.
