- Annually: : Lifestyle Health Assessment or Female Health Assessment

If you are a female employee over the age of 40 you might want to consider having a mammogram as part of your health assessment. You should read the information on the Nuffield Health website http://www.nuffieldhealth.com/treatments/breast-screening-and-awareness to decide if mammography is for you. Please consider the harms as well as the benefits when making your decision. Breast screening with mammography can save lives by finding cancers early but can also cause anxiety and unnecessary treatment in some women. Your health assessment doctor can discuss this with you.
Are Bank workers or self-employed staff eligible for this benefit?
No, free Health Assessments are limited to directly employed staff on a Nuffield Health contract of employment.
Who provides the Health Assessment?
Health & Wellbeing Assessments will be provided by the Nuffield Health clinical team at your choice of Wellbeing Assessment centre. Visit www.nuffieldhealth.com/health-assessments to find out where your nearest centre is.
Am I allowed to attend a Health Assessment during working hours?
If eligible for an assessment, you may attend during working hours with the prior agreement of your Manager. This includes travelling time where there is no assessment facility at your normal place of work. Travelling expenses incurred to attend a screening are not paid.
What if I need to cancel my booking?
If you need to cancel or rearrange your Health Assessment appointment with less than 3 full working days (this includes the day of the appointment) you will incur a 50% charge (fee dependent on the Health Assessment product), regardless of the reason.
For example if you have an appointment at 2pm on Tuesday that needs to be cancelled or changed you will need to call 03452 302 040 before 2pm on the Thursday.
Can I choose to have a more in-depth Health Assessment or more frequent Health Assessments?
You may increase the frequency of your Health Assessment or opt to have a more in-depth Health Assessment, but you will need to fund the difference in cost yourself; you can discuss this with the bookings team at the time of booking.
What tests does a Health Assessment include?
For details of the areas covered by each Health Assessment, please refer to the individual brochures:
