Heart Health Check £738
Many heart and circulatory diseases are caused by risk factors that can be controlled, treated, or modified. Obesity, smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and physical inactivity are major risk factors that you can do something about.
If you are worried about any risk factors, or you have a family history of cardiac disease, Northway Clinic’s Heart Health Check can identify any areas of concern and give you the knowledge to address them. Our health checks are not suitable for people with symptoms or pregnant women.
The comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced doctors will explore your personal and family history and look for risk factors by looking at how well your heart works, measuring your blood pressure, heart rate and body composition, and checking for high cholesterol and diabetes. The doctor will discuss lifestyle factors like smoking, alcohol, exercise, and diet.
- Pulse and blood pressure check
- Measurement of height, weight, and waist circumference with BMI calculation
- Blood tests – full blood count, kidney, liver, thyroid, glucose, cholesterol
- Urine test
- Exercise ECG (E-Bike test)
- Risk score calculation for cardiac disease (called Q-risk score)
If you are experiencing chest pain or worrying symptoms, seek medical attention right away.
If the Heart Health Check identifies a need for further tests, we can help refer you to a specialist for this. Further appointments and tests will incur an additional cost.
