KIMS Hospital Update

29th November 2018
Paul Brooks

In 2017/2018, according to the Health and Safety Executive statistics, 30.7 million working days were lost due to work-related ill health and workplace injuries in Great Britain. Of that, 15.4 million days were lost due to stress, depression or anxiety and 6.6 million days were lost due to musculoskeletal disorders.1

As the largest independent hospital in Kent, we believe we have a responsibility to ensure we help local businesses support the health and wellbeing of their teams by providing services that allow fast access to healthcare specialists, scans and diagnostic tests.

We also want to continue to diversify our services helping companies to access healthcare locally for their teams, avoiding further disruption by travelling further afield. Fast access to these healthcare services ensures your staff are back on the road to recovery promptly.

We are delighted to announce that we have recently launched;

GP led Healthy Prostate Assessment

The Healthy Prostate Assessment at KIMS Hospital is an initial step to finding out the health of your prostate and is available to men over the age of 40 through our private GP service. The assessment is a two-stage process, the first of which is to have a PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) blood test, a urinalysis and complete an IPSS (International Prostate Symptom Score) questionnaire.

The second stage, is to have an appointment with a KIMS Hospital GP, who will discuss the results of your PAS test, urinalysis and IPSS. They will also take a detailed family history and perform a digital rectum examination.

The prostate is a complex gland and no one test can identify if someone is at risk of prostate cancer. This assessment will help the GP to indicate your level of risk of prostate cancer and may highlight if you have any infections or an enlarged prostate that may need treatment.
