Our approach to Health Screenings
Osler Health understands that no two patients are the same. Everyone has different health histories and needs. That is why we do not subscribe to an ‘off the shelf’ approach which can lead to patients paying for tests and procedures they simply do not need.
We offer customised health screenings which are pertinent to you, based on your age, gender and health history. If you are looking for a full body check-up we can accommodate your needs in terms of cost and time.
Types of on-site Health Screenings
We always provide a personalised service, therefore you can expect health screenings which a pertinent to you. Health Screenings include:
Comprehensive Lifestyle Assessment
Further to the routine health checks above we also offer a deep-dive holistic review of your health and wellbeing as informed by Lifestyle Medicine.
A Comprehensive Lifestyle Assessment will provide a complete review of your health and wellbeing by assessing your health against the 6 pillars of Lifestyle Medicine; eating well, stress management, positive social connections, physical activity, use of harmful substances and restorative sleep.
Coming in for a Health Screening
Adults – it depends upon your age and health history, but in general it is recommended that adults book in for an annual health screening.
Children – should have growth and developmental assessment from newborn to 18 years of age.
Teens – don’t forget that a basic health screening is also a good way for teenagers to not only have a better understanding of their general health, but also provides an opportunity to discuss things that may be concerning them.

Frequently asked questions about Health Screenings in Singapore
Generally, it is recommended for adults to go for an annual health screening. This is because when health concerns are caught early, they tend to have better health outcomes. We also recommend health screenings for children to track growth and developmental milestones, and ensure that their childhood immunisations are up-to-date.
Customised health screenings are based on your age, gender, health history and individual requirements. Every individual has different needs, so we’ll only recommend tests and procedures that are pertinent to you. At Osler Health, we believe that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for health screenings. Instead, we recommend screenings based on your specific needs, age, gender and health history. This is beneficial to the patient as ‘off-the-shelf’ health screening packages often mean individuals pay for tests and procedures they simply do not need. At Osler, we’ll discuss any recommended tests and procedures and associated costs. As a clinic with a strong ethical code of conduct, you can rest assured there are no unpleasant cost surprises!
At Osler Health Singapore, we can accommodate your schedule and arrange your annual health screening at a time that works best for you. If you don’t have the time, budget or inclination to complete your health screening in one sitting, we can help you plan and prioritise your tests accordingly. Book an appointment with us today.
You can certainly still book in for a ‘Health Screening’ which may target specific needs, such as a mammogram or a skin check. The Comprehensive Lifestyle Assessment aims to review your health and recommend and guide you through long-lasting lifestyle changes to enhance your overall health and wellbeing. If you are not sure what you need please ask our Reception team.
A Comprehensive Lifestyle Assessment could be ideal for you if have been diagnosed with a chronic condition (such as high blood pressure) and you want to improve your overall health, reduce your need for prescriptions and reduce your future risk.
Or, if you just need some advice and guidance around your general health. While we always try to address lifestyle and wellness in every GP consultation, the reality is that some people may not feel unwell enough to feel the need to book a GP appointment but may just want some tailored advice around things they could be doing better. A Comprehensive Lifestyle Assessment could be ideal for you if you:
- review the 6 Pillars of Lifestyle medicine and recognise that you have concerns in one or multiple pillars
- have a strong family history of chronic disease and want some advice and guidance to help reduce your own risk
- want to get generally healthier but need some clear guidance on how
- have tried to make lifestyle changes but keep falling off the wagon
- feel you are lacking motivation
As we do not offer ‘off-the-shelf’ health screenings that are commonly offered by other providers, we cannot provide a simple ‘price’. Please rest assured that depending upon your needs the doctor will explain the cost of any medication or tests that are recommended. So there are no surprises! Please call our Reception team for more information.
