Echelon Optimum

Is this the lifesaving healthcheck we all need?

By Ashley Pearson on 18th August 2021

Preventative healthcare is on the rise and following the 18 months we’ve endured, many are taking their health more seriously than ever and as a result, comprehensive health checks are becoming increasingly in demand.

Championed by some of the most serious names in medicine as the most advanced health check available, Echelon Health is home to pioneering medical screening equipment and a selected team of experts. The cutting-edge CT and MRI technology is so accurate, it can detect up to 95% of diseases before they manifest, flagging early signs of cancers, tumours and heart disease.

New for this summer, Echelon Health has collaborated with one of London’s finest five-star hotels – the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, for their new Echelon Optimum package. The Echelon Optimum includes a full day of assessments at Harley Street, including a head-to-toe body scan, an EOS CT skeleton scan and blood work. The package involves a glorious two-night stay at the hotel, and clients can benefit from a chauffeur service too.

When their day at Echelon Health is over, clients will be taken back to the hotel, where they can relax in their luxurious room and they have vouchers to spend at the Mandarin Oriental, which can be used at the spa, on in-room dining or whatever they want as part of the service. In the morning, the client will be chauffeured back to their home and within two weeks, Echelon Health director Dr Paul Jenkins will follow up personally with a detailed health analysis and healthcare suggestions for the future. If the client requires treatment, Dr Jenkins will refer the client to either his trusted network of Harley Street specialists, or their own specialist practitioners.

Practicing to the highest and most thorough clinical standards, all state-of-the-art images from the scans are analysed by up to seven hand-selected for their brilliance, radiologists, who have 20 plus years’ experience in their field. Personal health care information is often siloed, but what Echelon offers is highly specific, advanced, integrated, and harmonised with curated data.

Costing £14,000 per person or £24,000 for two, the health check is not inexpensive, but ultimately it promises information and care that is definitely priceless.

Who is Dr Paul Jenkins?

After qualifying with a degree in Medical Sciences at Cambridge University, Dr Jenkins undertook his clinical training at The Royal London Hospital. Shortly afterwards, he joined the internationally renowned Department of Endocrinology at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, where he gained unrivalled experience in clinical endocrinology.

He remained at Barts for almost 20 years as well as running the endocrine service at Homerton University Hospital. Within the medical school, he was Dean for Pre-Registration Doctors and led an active research group into the interactions between hormones and cancer.

During his clinical career, he has been passionate about the benefits of early detection of disease and the role that modern imaging can play in healthcare. Over 15 years ago he established the European Scanning Centre in Harley Street and developed this into the UK’s leading independent diagnostic imaging company.

A few years ago, to complement ESC, he established Echelon Health. This enables him to combine his 30 years of clinical practice with state-of-the-art imaging to provide world-class preventive health assessments.

He has enormous experience of treating patients with post-viral fatigue syndrome, having managed several hundreds of patients with this condition, something which shares many features with long Covid.
