Centric’s Health Path has been developed by Dr Paddy Barrett, Preventive Cardiologist and Dr Emmett Byrne, GP Specialist in Preventive Medicine.

Health Path provides a very specific targeted approach to your health. We assess your health risk factors and create a plan to resolve the root cause of any identified issues that are responsible for driving disease morbidity and mortality. Using the latest body composition profiling and state of the art laboratory testing, such as advanced lipid and insulin profiling, we detect risk factors and potential disease, like cardiovascular and metabolic health problems, as early as scientifically possible.

This detailed biometric testing, coupled with submaximal fitness test and our targeted blood screening will identify the early risk factors and drivers of chronic disease, which in turn allows for earlier intervention, improving overall health and life span.


We aim to take a shared responsibility for our participants’ health and guide them to optimal health through preventive medicine and behavioral change.

Steps in your Health Path Programme

    complete online health questionnaire).

  • Follow up consultation with the Health Path doctor is available the week after your initial health assessment.
  • Receive your health report to include your personalised health action plan one week after your doctor consultation.
