What's included in this health

check?

Your Health Assessment includes:

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.
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 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.
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.
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.
This test measures the levels of vitamin B12 (also known as cobalamin) in your blood. Vitamin B12 deficiency anaemia can cause tiredness, light-headedness and heart palpatations. Since it can't be made naturally by your body, it's important to check your levels regularly (particularly if you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet).
This test measures the levels of folate (also called vitamin B9 or folic acid) in your blood. Folate helps prevent megaloblastic anaemia, a deficiency anaemia which can make you very tired and weak.
Your thyroid function test measures the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroxine (FT4) in your blood. It‘s estimated that around 1 in 20 people have a thyroid function problem, and this test can help identify both an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism).
Your iron stores test measures a specific protein in the blood called ferritin, which represents your total body iron stores. Ferritin is more sensitive at recognising iron deficiency than simply measuring iron levels in the blood, as ferritin stores can be significantly decreased before any fall in blood iron levels occurs. Iron deficiency anaemia is relatively common, and can make you feel tired, weak, dizzy and short of breath.
This test examines your blood health by checking your haemoglobin levels (including Mean Cell Haemoglobin or MCH) and red blood cell count (also known as an erythrocyte count). Abnormal haemoglobin levels can sometimes be a result of heart and lung diseases, while MCH and red blood cell count abnormalities can be caused by anaemia or vitamin deficiency.
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.
Vitamin D deficiency is common in the UK, making you feel tired and achey. It also puts you at greater risk from weakening of the bones (osteomalacia). Your vitamin D test measures the level of vitamin D (25-OH) in your blood to help identify deficiency or overload (which can lead to hypercalcaemia).
This test assesses your white blood cell (WBC) count and platelet count. Platelets are cell fragments which help your blood to clot. A platelet count which is too high or low can indicate thrombocytosis or immune system deficiencies. Your WBC count includes neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils. These are part of your body's immune system, helping your body fight infection and disease. A low WBC count can increase your risk of getting infections, while a high WBC can indicate that your body is trying to fight an infection. A high WBC can sometimes be caused by certain cancers, including leukaemia.
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 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 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.

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.
