Heart Disease & Stroke Core
Your Heart Disease and Stroke Core package builds on the Heart Disease and Stroke Active package, giving a greater insight into the health of your vital organs. The package also gives you important information about conditions affecting the blood such as leukaemia and anaemia, as well as general insight into the function of your immune system.
All packages also include an annual GP helpline available 24/7 to give you added peace of mind after your screening.
“Building on the Active package, the Core package provides you with a more detailed overview of your heart health and stroke risk, with the addition of a lung function check for COPD and a haematology profile (full blood count). People with COPD are at a higher risk of developing lung cancer, but a lung function test can help detect COPD before any symptoms become apparent. The haematology profile gives a greater insight into common blood disorders including anaemia, haemophilia, blood clots and blood cancers like leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. For a more in-depth analysis of your cardiovascular health, our Complete package also includes a check for Peripheral Arterial Disease, a PLAC test and a GP consultation for additional peace of mind.”
All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.
