The long hours spent sitting indoors at a computer while constantly rushing to complete tasks can take a toll on the health of your executive team.
Executive Medical Services
Recent studies have shown that more and more office executives are suffering from health conditions such as stress, backache and physical and mental fatigue, to name but a few.
While ailments such as these can lead to the development of life-threatening illnesses over time, few working people have the time to attend to them now. WHIPS offers Executive Health and Wellness Solutions for companies who want to experience the return of making an investment in the health of their employees.
WHIPS believes in customising our corporate solutions so that they fit perfectly with the needs of both the employer and the executive.
WHIPS can offer on- or off-site executive medicals, enable the prevention and early diagnosis of the most common lifestyle-related ailments such as coronary disorders and diabetes. The medical examination is conducted by a medical doctor/specialist physician at an off-site facility and takes around three hours to complete.

About The Assessment
This Medical is a full health check designed not only to try and detect any early signs of Cardiovascular Disease (causes heart attacks and stroke) and Cancer, but also to educate you about your health and actually try to prevent you developing illness.
We usually schedule executive medicals for the morning sessions, as we like you to Fast i.e., nothing to eat or drink for the preceding 10-12 hours. It is easier to do this whilst asleep, and this allows your body’s metabolism to achieve baseline levels.
Please note: if you have a medical condition that may be affected by this, or you are on any medication, you should discuss this by phone or email with the Doctor before attending / embarking on your fast.
You will have a full medical with the Doctor, which includes a full Medical History and Examination and Vision Screen (please bring your spectacles / lenses if you make use of these).
