More about your Female Health Assessment

Prior to commencing your lifestyle assessment, there is a thorough questionnaire to carry out. This helps us understand all factors influencing your current health status and future risk of developing certain lifestyle diseases, so we can provide a strong foundation for you to make positive changes.

During your lifestyle assessment, we will:

Check breasts

As well as checking your breasts for problems your doctor will also show you how to be breast aware and stay problem free. A mammogram is available for women over 40 if appropriate.

Check diabetes

Over half a million people in the UK have diabetes without knowing it. We will look for risk factors by measuring your blood glucose (sugar) level and analysing your urine. Our clinicians will then discuss your results and help you manage your blood sugar levels through exercise, nutrition and other lifestyle changes to reduce your risk of developing diabetes in the future.

Check anaemia

Tiredness can be a problem for all of us who lead busy lives. A blood test will check for anaemia and the ability to fight infection, so you know you have the energy to live life to the full.

Check cholesterol

Your heart is your body's most vital organ, so make it healthier with a few simple checks. Our blood test will assess your cholesterol level, whilst our clinicians will work with you to help lower your risk of cardiovascular disease by implementing healthier behaviours.

Check thyroid

Women over 50 are prone to an underactive thyroid. A blood test will identify this at a very early stage and allow the correct treatment to be given, before it becomes a serious problem.

Check gynaecology

Whatever your age you might need to discuss specific female problems. A cervical smear and full pelvic examination are both offered with full follow-up advice based on the results.

Health Assessment FAQs

    Before your health assessment

  • How long will the assessment take?

    This will depend on the type of health assessment you are having. Female and lifestyle health assessments take one hour, a 360 assessment will take two hours and a 360+ assessment will take three hours. If clinically indicated, and normally only for those 40 years of age or over, a mammogram can be added to female, 360 or 360+ assessments and it will last up to 30 minutes. It may be possible to have this at the same time as your health assessment or alternatively you may have to rebook another appointment dependent upon availability.

  • I don’t want to have some of the tests, can I decline them?

    Yes – the clinician who carries out your health assessment will explain each test as they go. If you do not want to have the test, you can decline it.

  • How long must I not eat for – can I have tea/coffee etc?

    As long as you are not diabetic, you should not have anything to eat or drink other than water for 8–10 hours prior to your health assessment. It is advisable to continue to drink water as normal, as staying well hydrated will help you feel more comfortable, can facilitate many of the tests, and will ensure your blood results are as accurate as possible. If you are diabetic, please continue to eat and drink as normal. If you are pregnant, only fast if you are comfortable to do so and if there are no medical concerns in your pregnancy.

  • What should I wear?

    It is advised that you wear comfortable and flexible clothing (loose top/tracksuit/shorts) and trainers as you may be required to complete some form of exercise during your assessment.

  • Can I take exercise/smoke/take a long-haul flight/drink/give blood before my assessment?

    We advise not to exercise 12-24 hours before the health assessment if possible. Exercise may affect the results of the urine analysis, body composition and blood pressure measurements.
    Men eligible for a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test should not exercise for 48 hours prior.
    to the health assessment (see relevant section on PSA).
    If you usually smoke, you can continue to do so.
    We advise you not to take a long-haul flight, as many of your tests may be affected for 48 hours after the flight.
    Drinking water prior to the health assessment can make it easier to accurately assess urine and blood samples, as well as blood pressure measures.
    We recommend waiting at least 12 weeks after giving blood before having a health assessment.

  • Can I complete the exercise testing regardless of my medical history?

    Please note that some contraindications exist for fitness testing. These are based on your previous medical history, particularly your cardiovascular health, current medications and some parameters measured at the time of your assessment, such as your blood pressure.

    For a full list of contraindications, please click here

  • Can I bring someone with me to my assessment?

    Yes – but space is limited and some of the questions and examinations can be intimate. You will need to consent to that person being privy to your results. Some of our sites do not allow under 18s on the premises so please check with us first if you are planning on bringing someone under the age of 18 with you to your assessment.

  • Are there any age restrictions for having a health assessment?

    There is a minimum age restriction of 18 years old. We cannot perform health assessments on anyone under 18 years of age. There is no upper age limit.

  • Can I choose to have a male or female physiologist/doctor?

    You may request a specific gender for your doctor, and we will do our best to accommodate based on staffing and location. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate these requests for physiologists.

  • Will I have a smear test as part of my appointment?

    If clinically indicated, smear tests are currently offered to females during a 360, 360+ or female health assessment. However, in line with UK and international guidelines, a smear test will be done every three to five years, depending on your age, unless there is a clinical need to complete one earlier.

  • What happens if I cannot have my smear test on the day of the assessment/I get my period?

    If your appointment is outside of the three full working days cancellation notice, you can contact Central Bookings to rearrange your appointment, otherwise we would recommend attending your appointment and your screening clinician can arrange a return visit.

  • I am pregnant – can I still have an assessment?

    Yes, our health assessments are more than just “know your numbers”. Many of your health metrics are likely to be different than usual during your pregnancy. However, our clinicians will be able to advise you on lifestyle considerations in order to optimise your wellbeing during your pregnancy and beyond.

  • Are there any restrictions on booking a mammogram?

    For female, 360 and 360+ assessments, a mammogram is available annually for women aged 40–49 years and every two years for women aged 50 years and over. It can be performed even if you are on the NHS programme, but there must be a minimum of one year in between mammograms. It is not appropriate for women under 40 years of age.

  • My health assessment includes a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test. Is there anything I need to do to prepare for this?

    If you are a male over the age of 50, your health assessment may include a PSA blood test. A number of factors can affect the results of this test. It is important you read this information leaflet detailing the practicalities involved in PSA testing: click here.

    Your PSA blood test may need to be rescheduled if this guidance is not adhered to (all other health assessment blood tests can take place).

  • What do I have to do with the FIT/Blood in stool kit?

    Bowel cancer screening is available to males and females over 45 years of age. If you are eligible, a kit will be sent to you prior to the assessment, along with instructions for accurate completion. If you wish to discuss the results of this test during the assessment, it must be returned to us in the pre-paid envelope five working days prior to your assessment.

    If received later than this point, the analysis may not be available for discussion during the assessment and your results will be sent to you in your health assessment report. However, you will be contacted by a health assessment doctor if the result requires your attention for follow-up.

  • After your health assessment

  • How soon will I get my results?

    During your assessment, the test results available on the day will be discussed with you. However, certain tests, like cervical smears and specific blood tests, will need to be sent away for further analysis and won't be ready for discussion during the assessment itself. These additional results will be included in your written personalised report. In case any result requires your attention for a follow-up, a health assessment doctor will contact you.

    You can expect to receive your report two weeks after your health assessment.
