Blood Pressure CheckĀ :

High blood pressure is a significant risk factor for heart disease and stroke. We can advise you on why and how to maintain a normal blood pressure, incorporating the latest guidance from bodies such as the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the British Hypertension Society (BHS).

Height, Weight and Body Mass Index (BMI) :

Raised BMI and height to weight ratios are associated with high blood pressure, risk of diabetes and increased risk of heart disease. We will advise you on how to manage and ensure your BMI is within an ideal category for you.

Resting Electrocardiogram (ECG) :

This test records the electrical activity of the heart and is used in the investigation of heart disease.

Full Blood Count :

We will measure the amount of haemoglobin in your blood as well as your red and white blood cells and platelets. These scores can indicate conditions such as cancers, leukaemia anaemia and vitamin deficiencies. Once again, we will advise you on any necessary treatment if any abnormalities are detected.

Cholesterol Profile :

High total cholesterol levels are associated with heart disease and stroke. Not only will we look at your total cholesterol, but also your LDL (bad cholesterol), HDL

Diabetes Test :

This entails a fasting blood glucose test. In early stage diabetes there aren't usually any symptoms, which is why this blood test is so important, especially if there are other high risk factors involved.

Kidney & Liver Function Tests :

These tests will tell us how well your liver and kidneys are working. We will measure levels of urea, creatinine and salts to assess your kidney function, and levels of enzymes to check your liver functions. Abnormal levels of these can indicate kidney or liver disease, which sometimes have no symptoms in their early stages. We will also look at your Albumin levels in your blood which is also a good indicator for kidney, liver and heart disease.

Calcium & Thyroid Function Tests :

By measuring how much calcium there is in your blood we can let you know how healthy your bones, muscles and nerves are, and give appropriate advise if your levels outside the recommended range. We assess your thyroid function for abnormalities as these results could affect your metabolism.

Urine Analysis :

We will check for traces of sugar, protein or blood in your urine. Presence of these can indicate diseases such as infection, diabetes, kidney or liver disease.

Bowel Cancer Test : (over 45 years)

In our patients over 45 years of age we will check for bowel cancer. These tests picks up trace amounts of blood in your stool which may lead to early detection of bowel cancer.

Cardiovascular Risk :

Several factors such as your age, weight, race, cholesterol levels, blood pressure and smoking history can affect your CV risk. Being at risk of a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack or stroke may not have any symptoms prior to the actual event. For this reason we will take the time to make a full and thorough assessment of your cardiovascular risk and also advise on how you can reduce this it.

Lung Function Test :

We can check to see how well your lungs are working using mini spirometers and peak flows. Lung function tests will help us detect conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and asthma, which can be very effectively treated with early detection.

Skin :

We will look at the condition of your skin by conducting a detailed examination to look for any abnormal areas.
