Randox Health, the UK and Ireland’s leading health screening company is delighted to announce the opening of its new clinic at the prestigious Slieve Donard Hotel, Newcastle County Down. The Randox Health clinic, based in the hotel’s luxurious spa was officially launched by local celebrity, Downtown Radio Presenter, Paul McKenna, accompanied by record breaking Northern Ireland ladies cycling and multi-sport team The Belles.
Julie McCorry from The Belles said taking a Randox Health test is essential for a fit and healthy body:
“As someone who has cycled around Ireland and who is preparing to Race Across America, I know of the importance of good health. What Randox Health can tell us about what is going on inside our own bodies is incredible. Through a blood test their scientists examine our molecules…checking the health of our bones, organs and even our genetics. Having in depth knowledge about your body is vital, whether you are a competitive athlete, a new mum or a retired businessman; health affects all of us at all ages.”
Randox Health’s service at the Slieve Donard Hotel begins with a consultation with Randox Health GP Dr Gary Smyth, involves a simple blood test and within 48 hours the patient receives a comprehensive report informing them of the exact state of their health. This is followed by a further consultation with the Randox Health GP who explains the results and makes recommendations for treatment and referrals.
The service is based on ground breaking science, developed over 20 years at a cost of £200million.
Claire Edkins, Business Development Manager at the Slieve Donard Hotel, said a partnership with Randox Health was a natural fit:
“We are delighted to welcome Randox into the Spa at Slieve Donard, this will offer our residents, members as well as the local community here in Newcastle the opportunity to undergo a comprehensive Health Check. If the opening night was anything to go by I am sure the new clinic at the Spa will prove to be very successful.”
Katie Coyle, Manager of Randox Health hopes to encourage guests at the Slieve Donard and visitors to the Mournes to find out just how healthy they are:
“Our testing has revealed many issues in people who have come to us; thinking they were in in good health. We are finding increasing numbers of cases of Diabetes, Cardio Vascular Disease and iron build up – which if left untreated can be fatal. We do hope visitors to this beautiful part of the world will come to our clinic so we can help them lead full and healthy lives. We have special packages; from men’s MOT checks, to Wellness packages, but if you have a particular issue that you would like investigated, let us know and we can tailor our tests to meet your needs.”
The clinic at the Slieve Donard Hotel is now taking bookings and complements Randox Health’s other clinics in Crumlin, County Antrim; The Culloden Estate and Spa, County Down; The Roe Park Resort, Limavady; Transformations Clinic, Dublin; Finsbury Circus, London.
