Why have a Health Check

It is estimated that over 60% of today's most common diseases are linked to the way we live our lives. It is important to understand the consequences of our actions on our bodies, as many of these diseases are preventable. Having a particular aspect of your health and well-being measured means that you can decide on what improvements you would like to make to your lifestyle, and monitor the impact of those changes on your health and your family's health.

We have invested in the latest screening equipment to ensure your results are accurate and reliable. All equipment provides results in less than 3 minutes, so you get peace of mind immediately!

Hospitals, doctors, dieticians, universities and leisure facilities throughout the UK, Europe and the USA use the same equipment extensively.

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is common, frequently fatal and, as a premature cause of ill-health, largely preventable. It affects more than 1.4 million people in the UK in some form. CHD is the UK's biggest killer, causing 110,00 deaths in England alone each year.

Four of the most important factors are smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and obesity.

Our Health Checks measure your Body Mass Index (BMI), your blood pressure, your cholesterol level and also screens you for diabetes
