Hi
Can anyone provide guidance / advice on best private health screening provider in Costa Blanca region?
We´re both in our early seventies and looking for a general whole body health check up. (my special concern is breast scan. His : prostate.)
There are a few clinics offering this service and I just wonder if any members have personal experiences which they may care to share.

All / any thoughts / advice will be greatly appreciated.

:welcome:

I imagine that you're registered with the state health service with S1s? If so, you can get all that done for free via your GP

As Xabiachica says, if you are entitled to State healthcare you will get some free health-screening. But I suspect the sort of "on demand" whole body health check you are looking for will only be available at a private hospital. Our private health insurer pays for an annual health-check which includes blood and urine analysis and, every two or three years, x-rays, heart test and abdominal scan. Most private hospitals in the Costa Blanca provide very thorough health checks for a price. They involve a full-day of consultations, MRI, scan, X-rays, etc. I think the cost is around €600 but this will vary depending on which hospital you choose (there can be dramatic differences - for example, the quote for an operation for my wife varied by €2,000 between two Alicante hospitals). You will find a full directory of local private hospitals on the web. I can recommend IMED who have hospitals in Benidorm and Elche (near the airport)

Hi, Thanks for the responses. We are resident, have S1 etc. My main interest was in getting a routine breast check Xray etc but these are only available up to the age of 70 (in this region anyway - Denia) Local health service will, of course, deal with any breast health issues after these present as a problem. I´m just trying to be a little pre-emptive. Looks like a trip to Imed.
Thanks again.
