The Active package is a good entry-level health MOT. It covers a range of areas relevant for males and females who want a basic overview of their health, including heart health and stroke risk. You’ll receive key readings covering heart, liver, kidneys, stroke risk, blood clots right the way through to iron, calcium, cholesterol and diabetes risk, highlighting any risk areas before they become problematic.

On top of the blood tests and body composition analysis, the package also includes a lung function check for COPD and an ECG heart rhythm check for atrial fibrillation (a common condition which can increase your risk of stroke up to 5 times). If you’re looking for a general set of baseline tests, this is the package for you.

What's included in this health

check?

Your Health Assessment includes:

This test uses an arm cuff attached to a sphygmomanometer to give your blood pressure result. Systolic and diastolic measurements are taken, helping identify high or low blood pressure.
A 6-lead ECG test will be used to check your heart rhythm. An accredited Cardiac Data Analyst will then review your trace (the image of your heartbeat over a period of time). The most common type of irregular heartbeat is atrial fibrillation, which affects around 1.2 million people in the UK. People with an irregular heartbeat are 5 times more likely to suffer a stroke than those without. This is because the condition increases your risk of blood clots.
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a common condition which restricts blood flow to the legs, most likely due to fatty deposits causing narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis). This test uses the ABPI (Ankle Brachial Pressure Index) to compare the blood pressure in your leg with the blood pressure in your arm. This test is only recommended for over 40’s.
Your blood test for kidney function checks your levels of sodium, urea, and creatinine as these can indicate any issues with kidney function. We also include an eGFR test (estimated glomerular filtration rate) which is a calculation of the amount of blood filtered through your kidneys over a period of time. This useful test is a measurement of how efficiently your kidneys are working.
Your essential proteins and iron test measures a number of important proteins found in the blood that are required for healthy bodily function, and iron which is vital for red blood cell production. Low protein levels can sometimes be related to liver or kidney disease, while low iron levels can show iron deficiency.
This test measures the levels of calcium, phosphate and uric acid in your blood. Calcium and phosphate are essential for muscle and nerve function, healthy teeth and bones, and energy function. Deficiencies in these can cause pins and needles, muscle cramps, weakness and tiredness. Uric acid helps test for gout, a painful condition affecting the joints in your body.
Your lung function test is an assessment of your respiratory health using spirometry. Lung function is often impaired due to respiratory conditions like asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).
Your body composition scan is performed by sending a safe electrical signal through your body via pressure-contact electrodes. You’ll receive a breakdown of the percentages and weights of the various components of your body including muscle mass, visceral fat, body water and more.
Your heart disease & stroke risk test, also called metabolic syndrome, combines test results from your health assessment (including cholesterol, BMI and blood pressure) with other common risk factors (like high blood pressure or having diabetes). Your result will help show the likelihood of you suffering heart disease or stroke in the future.
The liver function test looks at ALP (alkaline phosphatase), ALT (alanine aminotransferase), Gamma GT (Gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase), and Bilirubin levels in your blood to understand if you have a normal liver function.
Your cholesterol test, also called lipid panel, measures Triglycerides, High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) in your blood. LDL cholesterol is often referred to as bad cholesterol because high levels contribute to fatty build-ups in the arteries and increase the risk of heart attack, stroke and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The HbA1c blood test determines your risk of diabetes and is far more accurate than standard glucose testing. While a standard test is a snapshot of your glucose levels at the moment your sample is taken, the HbA1c test measures the average amount of glucose in your blood over the last 2-3 months.
Unlimited access to a 24/7 GP helpline for a year after your appointment. From tummy upsets to travel advice, the service even covers prescriptions.
Within around 8 days of your health check, you'll be able to view all your test results securely online. Within 21 days, you'll receive a printed hard copy results report through the post. Your report explains each test in detail, giving every result a flag of green, amber or red. This helps you identify any areas of concern at a glance. The report gives you follow-up advice on how you could improve your results, and we'll also let you know if any results need further follow-up with your own GP.

I received various invitations to get checked out, but always wondered would it be worth it.... Then I just decided to do it, and honestly I couldn't be happier. The location was easy to get to. I got looked after very well, everything got explained in normal English and the details I received after were amazing. The book was really detailed and easy to understand. Will definitely recommend and do it again for myself.
